    Determination of transfer rates of smoke constituents into mainstream smoke and the correlation to physical parameters

    HUSSEIN L.; KAMM H.; WESKE D.; BLUMENSTOCK M.
    British American Tobacco, Product Centre Europe, Bayreuth, Germany
    The mainstream smoke of a combustible cigarette contains several thousand smoke constituents. Examining the levels of certain compounds of interest, which are transferred into mainstream smoke, e.g. substances applied as flavourings, and correlating...

    Impact of reducing the number of analysis replicates prescribed by the Canadian Tobacco Reporting Regulations on the level of information obtained from cigarette emission testing

    VOISINE R.(1); ERRINGTON G.(2); McADAM K.G.(2)
    (1) Imperial Tobacco Canada Ltd, Montréal, QC, Canada; (2) British American Tobacco, Group R&D, Southampton, U.K.
    Before the introduction of the Canadian Tobacco Reporting Regulations (TRR), the Regulator stated a need to obtain more information on tobacco product emissions to support, amongst other things, “better program design” and the “right to know”. The...

    Steady-state and transient effective density of cigarette smoke

    CABOT R.(1); JOHNSON T.J.(2); OLFERT J.S.(2); YURTERI C.Ü.(1); McAUGHEY J.(1)
    (1) British American Tobacco, Group R&D, Southampton, U.K.; (2) University of Alberta, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Edmonton, Canada
    Effective particle density is an important aerosol characteristic and relates a particle’s mobility diameter to its mass; an understanding of both properties is important to model impaction and settling losses, such as in human lung deposition. The...

    Investigations into smokers' behaviour. A method to determine the depth of insertion on Smoked Cigarettes

    BARKEMEYER H.; SCHULZ W.; SEEHOFER F.
    British American Tobacco, Hamburg, Germany.
    A method has been developed which makes visible the imprint of lips of the tipping paper. The method is based on the detection of A-Amylase from saliva via starch degradation and iodine-starch reaction. First results obtained by this new technique...
