Adsorption of phenolic compounds and chemical analysis of them from a local production cigarette (named by
Farvardin cigarette) smoke have been investigated by using perlite filtration. In this research, the mainstream smoke was
tested by three filtration methods: Perlite filter, Cambridge filter and general cigarette filter. Then the used filter was
extracted by pure methanol as solvent. After that, the extracted solution was analysed by GC-MS. By this consideration,
the phenolic derivatives such as phenol, hydroquinone, resorcinol, pyrocatechol, m-cresol, p-cresol and o-cresol were
detected. The structure of the perlite filtration after absorption was studied by SEM. In addition, its chemical structure was
investigated by XRD and XRF.
