    Untargeted chemical characterization of the aerosol generated by a heated tobacco product

    BENTLEY M.; ALMSTETTER M.; ARNDT D.; KNORR A.; MARTIN E.; POSPISIL P.; MAEDER S.
    Philip Morris Products S.A., PMI R&D, Neuchâtel, Switzerland
    In contrast to quantitative analysis, where chemical constituents of interest are targeted to the exclusion of all others, an untargeted approach considers indiscriminate determination of all analytes relevant to a specific chemical space. A...
