Application of Gibbs free energy change to evaluation of moisture retention of tobacco
Key Laboratory of Tobacco Chemistry of Yunnan Province, Research & Development Center, Yunnan Industrial Co., Ltd of CNTC, Kunming, P.R. China
In order to evaluate the water retention of tobacco quickly and accurately, a model was developed based on water activity. Gibbs free energy change (GFEC) of tobacco was calculated according to thermodynamic correlation formula, and then the moisture...
