    Modified cigarettes. Evaluating the effect of charcoal filters and a filter with a porphyrin, in intensive smoking conditions regarding the content in cigarette smoke of nicotine, tar, CO and PHAs yield

    RUFENER C.; UMPIERREZ E.; BENSE T.
    CIT, Monte Paz S.A., Montevideo, Uruguay.
    The composition of cigarette filters is one of the factors we can manipulate to control smoke yield. In this work we compared the TPM, nicotine, carbon monoxide and 13 PHAs (including benzo[a]pyrene) emissions of cigarettes from three different blends of ...
