    Application of nanoparticle iron oxide in cigarette for simultaneous CO and NO removal in the mainstream smoke

    PING L.; RASOULI F.; HAJALIGOL M.R.
    Philip Morris USA, Research Center, Richmond, VA, USA
    Based on the unique temperature and oxygen profiles in a burning cigarette, a novel approach is proposed in this paper to use a single oxidant/catalyst in the cigarette filler for simultaneous removal of carbon monoxide (CO) and nitric oxide (NO) in...

    Relative positions of the thermal convection column and smoke plume generated from a smoldering cigarette

    MCRAE D.D.; JENKINS R.W. Jr.
    Philip Morris USA, Research Center, Richmond, VA, USA
    The relative positions of the thermal convection column and the smoke plume from a variety of smoldering cigarettes were measured using a combination of schlieren and visual optical systems. The schlieren technique is an optical method used to...
