Abstract

Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) is an important component of indoor air pollution. Concern about the health effects of passive smoking and the large segment of the population exposed to ETS has contributed to the need to develop a method that would allow for the assessment of the contribution of ETS to measured indoor particulate levels. In addition, industrial hygiene studies have found that cigarette smoke can interfere with analysis of air samples collected to evaluate personal exposure to other workplace contaminants. Samples of particulate ETS are most often collected on filters through which air is drawn, and because nicotine is a highly volatile compound, it may be lost from the filter during sampling. We have developed and report here a simple, sensitive method that will collect nicotine efficiently from ambient air while also collecting particles for additional analysis. The collection method was tested in an environmental chamber with ETS from several different brands of cigarettes and then tested as personal samplers on both office workers and those who worked in repair facilities and outdoors.
