    Analysis of 12 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons compounds in aerosol

    CORREIA D.; ROTA D.; SAUSER Y.; LE BOUHELLEC S.
    Philip Morris International, Research & Development (R&D) Innovation Cube, Neuchâtel, Switzerland
    Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) comprise a large class of chemical compounds known to be carcinogenic. These compounds are present in cigarette smoke, normally at low concentrations (ng/cig or lower). The purpose of this study was to...

    Determination of leakage in e-vaping products

    GOKSEL H.; JACQUES T.
    Philip Morris Products S.A. (part of Philip Morris International group of companies), PMI R&D, Neuchâtel, Switzerland
    An important quality aspect of e-vaping products is the absence of liquid leakage from the cartridge. Therefore it is highly important to verify cartridge integrity with a reliable method. Various external conditions could influence product...
