    Pyrolysis and combustion of tobacco in a cigarette combustion simulator - Analysis by time-of-flight mass spectrometry with soft ionisation

    University of Rostock, Analytical Chemistry, Institute of Chemistry, Rostock, Germany
    The standard methods for analysis of cigarette smoke are mostly offline measurements such as GC-MS. However, tobacco smoke is an extremely complex mixture of particles and vapours, containing thousands of compounds some of which are harmful and can...
