    LC-MS/MS multi-method for the determination of mono- and dicarbonyls in e-liquid and e-cigarette vapor

    POUR G.; WERNETH M.; KUBA M.; OHASHI S.; MAYER-HELM B.; SCHMEISSER E.
    JTI Ökolab, Vienna, Austria
    It is generally accepted that e-liquids and e-cigarette vapor may contain mono- and dicarbonyls. This class of compounds derive either from propylene glycol, glycerol or flavor substances in e-liquids or from thermal degradation during the vaping process. ...
