    A statistical analysis of variability in polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from reference and commercial cigarettes

    WAGSTAFF W.; RICKERT W.; JOZA P.
    Labstat international ULC, Kitchener, Ontario, Canada
    This study was conducted to characterize the variability of mainstream PAH emissions data and to investigate the ability to detect differences amongst products. The mainstream yields of a reference cigarette (Kentucky Reference 3R4F) were obtained for a ...

    An alternative strategy for the determination of pH values of aerosol from electronic cigarettes

    JOZA P.; MOHAMMAD A.; RICKERT W.S.
    Labstat International ULC, Kitchener, ON, Canada
    Any pH determination to measure the effective acid-base properties of an aerosol is dependent on the measurement technique. Determinations of aerosol pH using puff-by-puff collections are influenced by the buffer used to condition the electrode, while ...

    The impact of 2, 4-dinitrophenylhydrazine (DNPH) background in the determination of carbonyls compounds in e-cigarette vapor

    DONISA C.; JOZA P.; RODRIGUEZ-LAFUENTE A.; RICKERT W.S.
    Labstat International, Kitchener, ON, Canada
    Carbonyl compounds, are known to be present in some e-liquid formulations and can be formed during aerosol generation. Analysis of these compounds, as their hydrazones (2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine; DNPH) are routinely performed using high performance ...

    Analysis of organic acid content in e-liquids and e-cigarette aerosol by high performance liquid chromatography – ultraviolet detection (HPLC-UV)

    RODRIGUEZ-LAFUENTE A.; LODEVICO R.; SHARIFI M.; JOZA P.; RICKERT W.S.
    Labstat International, Kitchener, ON, Canada
    Weak organic acids can be used as preservative agents, potentially affecting the stability of e-cigarette solutions. However, they can also impact characteristics like the aroma and taste of aerosols. The objective of this study was to develop and ...

    Analysis of nicotine and nicotine related substances in electronic cigarette refill solutions and aerosols by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry

    LIU X.; JOZA P.; RICKERT W.S.
    Labstat International ULC, Kitchener, Ontario, Canada
    The objective of this study was to develop and validate an analytical method for determining nicotine, and nicotine related compounds (i.e. nicotine-N-oxide, cotinine, nornicotine, anatabine, myosmine, anabasine, and ß-nicotyrine) in e-cigarette aerosols ...

    An alternative strategy for the determination of metals in the aerosol from electronic cigarettes

    JOZA P.; DONISA C.; RICKERT W.S.
    Labstat International ULC, Kitchener, Ontario, Canada
    Methods for the determination of metals in mainstream cigarette smoke, in general, have limited flexibility and are susceptible to sporadic high levels of background contamination when applied to the collection of aerosol from electronic devices. To ...
