    Effect of SBA-15 morphology in the composition of the mainstream tobacco smoke

    MARTÍNEZ-CASTELLANOS I.; MARCILLA A.; BELTRÁN M.I.; BERENGUER D.; BLASCO I.; JUAREZ N.; ASENSIO J.; CALABUIG E.
    University of Alicante, Alicante, Spain
    Mesoporous silica materials, such as SBA-15, are attracting increasing interest in the last years. Our research group has focused in their capability for reducing the toxic compounds generated in the smoking process when mixed with tobacco. By tuning...
