Organic materials with boiling point between 250ºC and 350ºC can be often classified as Semivolatile Organic Compounds (SVOC).

Typical example of the semi- volatile material is cigarette smoke. The visible part of the smoke is mist of tobacco tar, other chemicals produce invisible vapor.
The most common SVOC tested by LCS Laboratory are
