cigarette smoke as an example of semi- volatile liquid

cigarette smoke is an example of semivolatile liquid

Organic materials with boiling point between 250ºC and 350ºC can be often classified as Semivolatile Organic Compounds (SVOC). The term “semi-volatile” refers to the fact that being pulverized in the air, the chemical partially evaporates, but some components remains liquid in form of mist.  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

  • Ethylene Glycol,
  • Propylene Glycol,
  • Nicotine
  • Isocyanates
  • Tert-Butyl Catechol
  • Polycyclic Aromatic Compounds (PAC)
  • Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH’s)
  • Other

LCS Laboratory offers variety of tests for semi- volatile compounds most of which are listed in our price list. Please email us to discuss your test.
