    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    We published last year results indicating that under natural conditions, the total smoke exposure decreased for smokers switching from a full flavour brand to the light corresponding brand. The amount of the decrease was then concordant with the...

    Prediction of a biological variable (Ames test on TPM) and of a chemical variable (TSNAs in smoke) according to the tobacco's chemical and physical characteristics

    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    Chemical analyses of special analytes (e.g. TSNAs) or biological tests on the smoke are rather sophisticated and time consuming technologies. Giving estimates based on fast analyses would enable the blenders to have a tool allowing them to reduce...

    Near-infrared spectroscopy and pattern recognition as screening methods for classification of commercial tobacco blends

    FIGUERES G.; ANDRIEU E.; BIESSE J.P.; VIDAL B.; DUMERY B.
    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    Group classification of tobacco blends is commonly performed using several different types of compositional data including tobacco compounds, additive or process components. But all of these wet chemistry methods are relatively time-consuming. A need...
