    ETI S.p.A., Research, Chemistry Dept., Rome, Italy.
    This work reports the use of microwave energy for the extraction of tobacco specific nitrosamines (TSNAs) from tobacco and their detection with a thermal energy analyser (TEA). Conventional sample preparation procedures for the TSNAs involve extraction ...

    Determination of tobacco specific nitrosamines in tobacco and tobacco products by gas chromatography-thermal energy analysis

    MOLA M.; LIONETTI G.; NUNZIATA A.
    ETI S.p.A., Research, Chemistry Dept., Rome, Italy.
    Nitrosamines are chemical compounds that have been linked to some types of cancer. They are not present in freshly harvested green tobacco but they are primarily formed during drying, curing, aging and especially fermentation, by nitrosation of tobacco ...

    Tobacco specific nitrosamines in mainstream smoke: development of a gas chromatographic method for their determination

    MOLA M.; LIONETTI G.; NUNZIATA A.
    ETI S.p.A., Research, Chemistry Dept., Rome, Italy.
    Nitrosamines are chemical compounds that are present in tobacco and tobacco smoke. When tobacco burns during smoking, the tobacco specific nitrosamines can transfer to smoke as well as decompose thermally, and additional amounts of the nitrosamines can be ...
