    Real-time on-line characterisation of selected Hoffmann analytes in inhaled and exhaled cigarette smoke (Mouthspace) by photo ionisation time-of-flight mass spectrometry

    STREIBEL T.; SKLORZ M.; MITSCHKE S.; ADAM T.; ZIMMERMANN R.
    University of Augsburg, Analytical Chemistry, Institute of Physics, Augsburg, Germany
    Chemical composition of cigarette smoke has been extensively researched in the past mostly using off-line methods such as GC/MS or HPLC. Often the smoke was already aged and altered by the sampling/trapping when it was analyzed. It is known that many ...
