    New cultivars for the Italian Burley industry

    COZZOLINO E.; LEONE V.; LOMBARDI P.
    Consiglio per la Ricerca e la Sperimentazione in Agricoltura - Unità di Ricerca per le Colture Alternative al Tabacco (CRA-CAT), Scafati (SA), Italy
    Lack of information about cultivar adaptation to specific areas is a hindrance to the progress of the tobacco industry. To provide such information for Italian Burley areas, an on-farm variety trial is underway at Vitulazio, in the province of Caserta, ...

    Effect of the degree of leaf ripeness at harvest on the yield, quality and chemical characteristics of Oriental (sun-cured) tobacco

    KARAIVAZOGLOU N.A.; PAPAKOSTA D.K.; DIVANIDIS S.
    Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece; Tobacco Institute of Greece, Chemistry Dept., Drama, Greece
    Harvest date is one of the most important crop management practices affecting tobacco yield, quality and usability after curing. In a two-year field experiment, investigations were made into the effect of the degree of leaf ripeness at harvest on several ...

    Investigation of tobacco pyrolysis gases and puff-by-puff resolved cigarette smoke by single photon ionisation (SPI) - Time-of-flight Mass Spectrometry (TOFMS)

    ADAM T.; MITSCHKE S.; BAKER R.R
    University of Augsburg, Analytical Chemistry, Institute of Physics, Augsburg, Germany
    The work presented deals with the application of Single Photon Ionisation- Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (SPI-TOFMS) for the investigation of tobacco smoke. SPI-TOFMS is a modern analytical technique, which enables the simultaneous analysis of a large ...

    Fast on-line tobacco smoke analysis with Photo Ionisation - Time-of-Flight-Mass Spectrometry - Part 1: Scientific background and basic principles

    ZIMMERMANN R.; MÜHLBERGER F.; MITSCHKE S.; STREIBEL T.; ROSE N.
    University of Augsburg, Analytical Chemistry, Institute of Physics, Augsburg, Germany
    Mass spectrometry (MS) with soft ionisation (i.e. non fragmenting ionisation) allows a direct on-line monitoring of organic compounds in complex gaseous matrices such as tobacco smoke. Photo ionisation (PI) methods are particularly well suited for this ...
