    Using diffusion measurements to predict the ignition propensity of cigarettes

    LOUREAU J.M.; KRAKER T.; LE MOIGNE C.; SNOW L.; WANNA J.
    Schweitzer-Mauduit International, Papeteries de Mauduit, Quimperlé, France
    The dominant technology used on cigarette paper to help reduce the ignition propensity of cigarettes is to apply bands of a coating material to the cigarette paper. The role of these bands is to reduce the burn intensity of the cigarette as the...

    Paper tools to reduce formaldehyde and other carbonyl compounds in cigarette mainstream smoke

    LOUREAU J.M.; JOYEUX T.; LE BEC L.; LE BOURVELLEC G.; LE MOIGNE C.
    Papeteries de Mauduit, Quimperlé, France
    Carbonyl compounds and in particular formaldehyde are major oxidation by-products of combustion processes of tobacco during smoking. These compounds are generated in both mainstream and sidestream smoke. Several studies showed that the amount of...

    Characterisation and influence of the porous structure of cigarette paper on CO deliveries

    LOUREAU J.M.; JOYEUX T.; LE MOIGNE C.; LE BOURVELLEC G.
    Papeteries de Mauduit, Quimperlé, France
    The influence of cigarette paper on CO deliveries has been described in a number of studies. Two mechanisms play a major role: dilution and diffusion through the cigarette paper. The dilution is dependant on air permeability. The diffusion is...

    Hoffmann analytes: Influence of cigarette paper and filter ventilation

    LOUREAU J.M.; BIESSE J.P.; CLARISSE G.; VIDAL B.; DUMERY B.; LE MOIGNE C.; LE BEC L.; LE BOURVELLEC G.
    Papeteries de Mauduit, Quimperlé, France; Altadis, Les Aubrais, France
    Having a tool that can predict the Hoffmann analytes has become necessary, not only because of regulations, but also as a reference for the chemical composition of smoke for the Potential Reduced Exposure Products (PREPs). The work presented in...

    Influence of cigarette paper, porosity and amount of citrate, and of filter ventilation on the Hoffmann analytes

    LOUREAU J.M.; BIESSE J.P.; CLARISSE G.; VIDAL B.; DEBERLY S.; LE MOIGNE C.; LE BOURVELLEC G.
    Papeteries de Mauduit, Quimperlé, France
    The measurement of Hoffmann analytes, since it has been requested in Canada and then in some of the US states and in Brazil, has become necessary. If a number of studies have already been published on the influence of some cigarette design tools...
