    (1) Ramboll U.S. Corp., Amherst, MA, U.S.A.; (2) RAI Services Co., Winston-Salem, NC, U.S.A.
    The Dynamic Population Modeler (DPM(+1)) employs a birth cohort framework to estimate effects on population mortality if tobacco use patterns shift from a higher- to lower-risk product. DPM(+1) allows for evaluation of changes in use patterns within the ...

    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 ...
