    Influence of the time of synthesis of SBA-15 on its effect as a catalyst reducing toxicant concentration in tobacco smoke

    JUÁREZ-SERRANO N.; MARCILLA A.; BELTRÁN M.I.
    University of Alicante, San Vicente del Raspeig, Spain
    In recent years, SBA-15 has been suggested as an additive for reduction of toxic compounds in tobacco smoke. The structure of this type of materials is strongly dependent on the synthesis conditions. The objective of the present work is to analyze the ...

    Characteristics and composition of mainstream smoke from 10 RYO tobacco brands sold in Spain: effects of additives capable of reducing the evolution of carbon monoxide, nicotine, and TPM

    MARCILLA A.; BELTRAN M.I.; GOMEZ-SIURANA A.; MARTINEZ I.; BERENGUER D.
    Alicante University, Alicante, Spain
    In this study, 10 commercial roll-your-own (RYO) tobacco brands that together represent 40% of this market in Spain were smoked under ISO conditions. The 3R4F reference cigarette tobacco was also smoked for comparison. The mainstream smoke was analyzed to ...
