    Having a tool that can predict the Hoffmann analytes has become necessary, not only because of regulations, but also as a reference for the chemical composition of smoke for the Potential Reduced Exposure Products (PREPs). The work presented in this paper ...

    Prediction of a biological variable (Ames test on TPM) and of a chemical variable (TSNAs in smoke) according to the tobacco's chemical and physical characteristics

    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    Chemical analyses of special analytes (e.g. TSNAs) or biological tests on the smoke are rather sophisticated and time consuming technologies. Giving estimates based on fast analyses would enable the blenders to have a tool allowing them to reduce tobacco ...

    Near-infrared spectroscopy and pattern recognition as screening methods for classification of commercial tobacco blends

    FIGUERES G.; ANDRIEU E.; BIESSE J.P.; VIDAL B.; DUMERY B.
    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    Group classification of tobacco blends is commonly performed using several different types of compositional data including tobacco compounds, additive or process components. But all of these wet chemistry methods are relatively time-consuming. A need ...

    Influence of curing procedures and nornicotine potential on TSNA formation in three varieties of dark tobaccos

    DE ROTON C.; SAN L.H.; VIDAL B.
    SEITA, Institut du Tabac, Bergerac, France
    Due to their genotype and curing mode, air-cured tobaccos usually have a higher content in tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNA) than Virginia flue-cured varieties. Two studies were conducted at the Bergerac Institute in 1996 and 1997 to measure the effect ...
