Studies on the relationship of leaf tobacco composition to the composition of cigarette smoke. 1. Possibility of the estimation of tar content in cigarette smoke from the chemical composition of tobacco leaves

, : Studies on the relationship of leaf tobacco composition to the composition of cigarette smoke. 1. Possibility of the estimation of tar content in cigarette smoke from the chemical composition of tobacco leaves. Scientific Papers of the Central Research Institute, Japan Monopoly Corporation (113): 89-97

Crude ash and total-alkaloid contents of tobacco leaves were highly correlated with tar content of cigarette smoke. Linear formulae for the estimation of tar content were obtained from data on ash and alkaloid content. Standard deviation of the discrepancies between estimated and observed values were small with domestic flue-cured and leaf of Virginia flue-cured tobacco (0.71-1.33 mg), but large with native and Burley tobaccos and cutter of Virginian flue-cured tobacco (2.05-2.15 mg).
