    E-liquids are hygroscopic, non-aqueous liquids containing a small amount of water (~3-15%). When the pH of a non-aqueous liquid is measured using conventional methods and calibration buffers, the value can only be regarded as an "apparent pH". This...

    A robust method for evaluating the pH of e-liquids

    ST. CHARLES F.K.(1); MOLDOVEANU S.(2); SCOTT W.(2)
    (1) St. Charles Consultancy, Lewisville, NC, USA; (2) R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., Winston-Salem, NC, USA
    The measurement of pH is one of the simplest and most common analytical methods practiced in the laboratory. The pH-meter is calibrated using certified buffers, the electrode is placed in the solution, and if a reading is obtained, the value is used....

    Nicotine activity in tobacco

    ST.CHARLES F.K.(1); MOLDOVEANU S.C.(2)
    (1) St. Charles Consultancy, Lewisville, North Carolina, USA; (2) R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA
    The vapor pressure of pure nicotine has been reported in the literature. However, to the best of our knowledge, measurements of the vapor pressure of nicotine from tobacco have not been reported. Nicotine migration from tobacco to cigarette filters...

    The migration during storage, transfer to smoke, and filtration efficiency of nicotine, glycerin, and propylene glycol in cigarettes.

    ST. CHARLES F.K.(1); MOLDOVEANU S.C.(2); MILLS H.D.(2); ANDRESEN N.P.(2)
    (1) St.Charles Consultancy, Winston-Salem, NC, USA; (2) R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., Winston Salem, NC, USA
    This study evaluated the migration during storage, transfer to smoke and filtration of nicotine, glycerin and propylene glycol (PG) for cigarettes with cellulose acetate/triacetin filters. Filtration efficiency (FE) and smoke yields were studied for...

    The quantitative estimation of toxicant dose to cigarette smokers

    ST. CHARLES F.K.(1); MCAUGHEY J.(2); SHEPPERD J.(2)
    (1) St. Charles Consultancy, Winston Salem, NC, USA; (2) British American Tobacco (Investments) Limited, Southampton, UK
    For the risk assessment of cigarette smoke, a reliable estimate of the mass of chemical compounds retained in the body would be beneficial. Filter studies provide estimates of mouth exposure to compounds in cigarette smoke, but do not account for...

    Estimation of the state of nitrogen nourishment of tobacco using the N-tester

    KOWALCZYK-JUSKO A.; KOSCIK B.
    University of Agriculture, Lublin - Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Zamosc, Poland.
    The purpose of this work, based on a three years of field experiment, was to inspect whether it is possible to use a chlorophyll meter in fixing the nitrogen doses used in growing flue-cured tobacco. The relationship between the capacity of nitrogen...

    Influence of aqua terra hydrogel on growth, development and yield of light cigarette tobacco

    KOSCIK B.; KOWALCZYK-JUSKO A.
    University of Agriculture, Lublin - Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Zamosc, Poland.
    The aim of introductory field and pot experiments which were carried out in Zamosc in the years of 1995-1997 was to study the influence of Aqua Terra hydrogel on the growth, development and yield of light cigarette tobacco. Hydrogels are substances...
