    The chemical components identified in tobacco and tobacco smoke prior to 1954: a chronology of classical chemistry

    RODGMAN A.; PERFETTI T.A.
    Alan RODGMAN, 2828 Birchwood Drive, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, 27103-3410, USA
    Because of the excellent fractionation and identification technologies developed during the early-1950s, the compositions of tobacco and tobacco smoke, both classified as highly complex mixtures, have been defined more completely than the composition...

    The composition of cigarette smoke: a catalogue of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons

    RODGMAN A.; PERFETTI T.A.
    Alan RODGMAN, 2828 Birchwood Drive, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, 27103-3410, USA
    Classified as toxicants in many of the substances to which humans are exposed are the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Such exposures include air pollutants from a variety of sources, foodstuffs and beverages, and tobacco smoke. Since the...

    The relative toxicity of substituted phenols reported in cigarette mainstream smoke

    SMITH C.J.; PERFETTI T.A.; MORTON M.J.; RODGMAN A.; GARG R.; SELASSIE C.D.; HANSCH C.
    R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, R&D, Winston-Salem, NC, USA
    Cigarette mainstream smoke (MS) contains a number of structurally diverse substituted phenols. Recent quantitative structure activity relationship (QSAR) studies of phenols show that substituted phenols with electron-releasing groups can form...

    Determination of the transfer efficiency of d-nicotine to mainstream smoke

    PERFETTI T.A.; GORDON B.M.; COLEMAN W.M. III
    R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, Winston Salem, NC, USA
    Experiments were conducted to independently determine the mainstream smoke transfer efficiency of d -nicotine and l -nicotine. Two types of cigarettes (University of Kentucky 2R1 reference cigarette and a cigarette prepared from reconstituted sheet...

    The heat of combustion of tobacco and carbon oxide formation

    NORMAN A.B.; PERFETTI T.A.; PERFETTI P.F.
    R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, Winston Salem, NC, USA
    Recent studies demonstrated a relationship between mass burn rates of straight-grade cigarettes and heats of combustion of the tobacco materials. In the present work, relationships between measured heats of combustion and elemental composition of the...
