    Between vapour and smoke? Prooxidant activity of electronic cigarette emissions

    TROFIMOV A.V.; MENSHOV V.A.
    Emanuel Institute of Biochemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russian Federation
    Electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) are considered among the most promising tools designed for the reduction of a potential harm derived from smoking. Nevertheless, debates exist over the scientific evidence for claims that e-cigs have no health-related ...

    Redox processes in a smoker's organism: Between the imbalance and the stress

    TROFIMOV A.V.; MENSHOV V.A.
    Emanuel Institute of Biochemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russian Federation
    Estimating a smoker's health may utilise approaches based on the role of oxidative stress in pathogenic developments. In this context, oxidative stress is often considered as an imbalance in redox processes. Nevertheless, our analysis of the ...

    Smoke-derived chemiluminescence as phenomenon and experimental tool

    TROFIMOV A.V.; FEDOROVA G.F.; MENSHOV V.A.; TSAPLEV Yu.B.; VASIL’EV R.F.
    Emanuel Institute of Biochemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russian Federation
    Chemiluminescence emission can be detected from cigarette smoke. This is thought to link to smoke free radicals, many of which are reactive oxygen and nitrogen species of excited states. Smoke-derived chemiluminescence was first observed in the mid-1970s, ...

    Feature selection from near infrared spectra using genetic algorithms for tobacco blend recognition

    FIGUERES G.; DE SOUZA S.; REYNES C.; SABATIER R.; VIDAL B.
    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    Near infrared reflectance spectroscopy has proved to be very useful for predicting concentrations of chemical compounds in tobacco, classification or pattern recognition of cigarette blends. The resulting measurement of a sample is a whole reflectance ...

    How representative of the human smoking behaviour would be the new alternative smoking regimes? A first attempt of assessment

    MARCHAND V.; TESSIER C.; DUMERY B.
    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    The ISO or FTC smoking conditions (35 mL- 2 s puffs, 1 puff per minute) have been more and more criticized during the last decade, especially because they would not reflect the human smoking behaviour. Their main objective was not to predict the exact ...

    A mixture experimental design with six variables and the effects on smoke components:1 - Presentation of this experimental design and of some initial results on physical characteristics of cigarettes and blends

    VIDAL B.; FIGUERES G.; BIESSE J.P.; BREGEON B.; LOUVET F.; MUZELLEC L.
    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    The objective of this paper is to examine the effects of six tobacco components on the chemical and physical characteristics of blends and cigarettes and particularly on the mainstream smoke yields. First of all, we will develop the philosophy of this ...

    A mixture experimental design with 6 variables and the effects on smoke components:2 - Hoffmann analytes behaviour through a mixture experimental design

    FIGUERES G.; VIDAL B.; BIESSE J.P.; BREGEON B.; LOUVET F.; MUZELLEC L.
    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    Today in the tobacco industry, one of the main scientific challenges is to understand the formation of some smoke compounds ("Hoffmann analytes"). For several years, work has been conducted in order to know the influence of cigarette design ...
