    Nicotine reduction: use of modelling approach to evaluate unintended consequences, a focus on illicit trade

    GUO M.; VERRON T.; CAHOURS X.; COLARD S.
    SEITA-Imperial Tobacco Limited, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    In 2015, the WHO TobReg issued an advisory note recommending a strategy for reducing nicotine in tobacco to substantially lower levels. The authors considered that regulation of nicotine levels would lead to a decrease of smoking prevalence. In their...

    Contribution of near infra-red spectrometry (NIRS) to detect nicotine conversion to nornicotine in Burley tobacco

    VERRIER J.L.; JOURDAIN M.; VERRON T.
    Imperial Tobacco Group, Institut du Tabac, Bergerac, France
    Discarding converter plants is a major goal in the seed production of Burley cultivars, but requires chemical analysis of individual alkaloids. In order to lessen this workload, we explored the possibilities offered by spectrometry. The LabSpec...
