    University of Kentucky, Dept. of Agronomy, Lexington, KY, USA
    The complex reactions controlling the formation of tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNA) in the curing of tobacco have caused difficulty in developing a curing procedure to decrease nitrosamine levels in tobacco. Previous studies have shown that there was ...

    Decreases and distributions of plant constituents within in a leaf during air curing - plant pigments, nitrites and tobacco-specific nitrosamines

    BURTON H.R.; DYE N.K.
    University of Kentucky, Dept. of Agronomy, Lexington, KY, USA
    The distribution of constituents within a tobacco leaf has not been well defined. Metabolism and distribution of individual leaf constituents during air-curing to the present have not been investigated. The purpose of this study was to determine the ...

    Accumulation of nitrites and tobacco-specific nitrosamines from different tobacco types during curing

    BURTON H.R.; DYE N.K.; BUSH L.P.
    University of Kentucky, Dept. of Agronomy, Lexington, KY, USA
    Accumulation of nitrosamines in tobacco and conditions which influence their formation have been of recent interest. A study has been completed to determine if there are differences in tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNA) levels from different tobacco ...
