    The stability of diacetyl and acetyl propionyl and the conversion of acetoin to diacetyl in e-liquids

    VAS C.; MARGHAM J.; WATERS G.; SANCHEZ M.; COSTIGAN S.; McADAM K.
    British American Tobacco, R&D Centre, Southampton, U.K.
    Background: Diacetyl (DA) and acetyl propionyl (AP) have been reported to be used in many e-liquid flavours. Inhalation of DA in occupational settings has been shown to lead to the onset of a decline in respiratory function and a condition known as ...
