    The effect of position of carbon granules within a cigarette filter on vapour phase retention

    McCORMACK A.D.; TAYLOR M.J.
    Filtrona Technology Centre, Jarrow, Tyne & Wear, UK
    Numerous papers have been presented at previous conferences examining the characteristics of filter cigarettes containing activated carbons on the removal of vapour phase compounds from smoke. All these studies have been carried out on triple...

    A model for the respiratory retention of compounds found in cigarette smoke

    ST. CHARLES F.K.
    Consultant to British American Tobacco, Group R&D, Southampton, UK
    For the risk assessment of cigarette smoke, it is desirable to have a reliable estimate of the mass of chemical compounds retained in the body during smoking. Filter studies can provide reliable estimates of mouth exposure to compounds in cigarette...

    Baseline data from a longitudinal study to monitor smoking behaviour of smokers of a 10mg ISO tar cigarette in Germany

    CUNNINGHAM A.; SISODIYA A.; ASHLEY M.; TRAN M-L.; SHEPPARD J.; ERRINGTON G.; PRASAD K.
    British American Tobacco, Group R&D, Southampton, UK
    The long-term health effects of cigarette smoking have been extensively investigated and are well known. Many studies have reported the effects of short-term switching on smoking behaviour. However, few long-term studies have been conducted recently...

    The development and application of a method for the estimation of mouth level exposure (MLE) to four tobacco specific nitrosamines

    CLAYTON P.M.; PRASAD K.; SISODIYA A.
    British American Tobacco, Group R&D, Southampton, UK
    Tobacco specific nitrosamines (TSNA) in cigarette smoke are an important class of toxicants. Therefore the quantification of TSNA via spent filters from smokers is a valuable addition to the filter analysis method. Previous research has shown that...
