Characterization of water distribution in cut tobacco using a low-field 1H NMR technique
Zhengzhou Tobacco Research Institute of CNTC, Zhengzhou, Henan, China
Cut tobacco was studied by low-field 1H NMR at various water contents and temperatures. The spin-spin relaxation times (T2) were measured with Carr-Purcell-Meiboom-Gill (CPMG) sequences. Three populations were observed in cut tobacco, namely,...
