    Influence of the time of and stirring rate during the first step of synthesis of SBA-15 on its catalytic effect for reducing toxicants concentration in tobacco smoke

    JUÁREZ-SERRANO N.; ASENSIO-MORANT J.; MARTÍNEZ-CASTELLANOS I.; BERENGUER D.; BLASCO I.; BELTRÁN M.I.; MARCILLA A.
    University of Alicante, Alicante, Spain
    Certain mesoporous materials can modify notably the composition of smoke tobacco, since they can act as catalysts and/or adsorbents allowing to reduce the toxic and carcinogenic compounds of the smoke. However, the properties of the catalysts strongly ...

    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 the ...

    Effect of the addition of SBA-15 in the pyrolysis of a reference tobacco under inert and oxidizing atmosphere

    CALABUIG E.; MARCILLA A.; BELTRÁN M.I.
    University of Alicante, San Vicente del Raspeig, Spain
    The composition of evolved products from slow pyrolysis under inert and oxidizing atmospheres of a reference tobacco 3R4F from the Reference Cigarette Program of the College of Agriculture of the University of Kentucky and a mixture of the reference ...

    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 ...

    The influence of storage conditions and packaging on acetic acid generation in cellulose acetate fibers

    TATUM C.E.; WILSON S.A.; CASPER R.G.; PEARCE M.J.
    Eastman Chemical Company, Kingsport, TN, U.S.A.
    The cellulose acetate polymer used in cigarette filters is made by acetylating wood pulp with acetic anhydride. One advantage of this modified natural polymer is that it readily degrades by multiple mechanisms. While the ultimate products are carbon ...

    Comparison of the cerulean e-cigarette pressure drop testing instrument to the ces 508 cigarette pressure drop and ventilation tester unit for electronic cigarettes, conventional tobacco burning cigarettes, and filter tips

    AVANTS K.W.(1); WILSON S.A.(2); CLARK J.(1)
    (1) Liggett Group, LLC, Mebane, NC USA; (2) Eastman Chemical Company, Kingsport, TN USA
    The pressure drop or “resistance to draw” of cigarettes and cigarette-like products is a prominent experience for consumers. This poster is a comparison of two commercial instruments with different approaches to measuring pressure drop. The instruments ...

    Study of the decomposition of tobacco/citrate/SBA-15 mixtures in nitrogen and air atmospheres

    MARCILLA A.; BELTRAN M.I.; GOMEZ-SIURANA A.; MARTINEZ I.; BERENGUER D.
    Alicante University, Alicante, Spain
    Combustion is a complex physical-chemical process. The products of combustion strongly depend on the temperature and oxygen availability in the different zones of the cigarette. Potassium citrate is widely used as a cigarette ingredient, acting as a ...
