    Analysis of mercury in mainstream smoke or aerosol

    HOFER I.; YERLY M.; MARCHESE A.; LE BOUHELLEC S.
    Philip Morris International, Research & Development (R&D) Innovation Cube, Neuchâtel, Switzerland
    Mercury has been identified as a harmful, or potentially harmful, constituent of tobacco smoke. For this reason, methods for quantifying the mercury content in the mainstream smoke of cigarettes, or in the aerosol of potential Reduced Risk Products [1] ...

    Indoor air chemistry: an exploratory study on e-cigarettes shows no negative impact on indoor air quality

    GOUJON GINGLINGER C.; MITOVA M.; MOTTIER N.; ROUGET E.; THARIN M.; MAEDER S.
    Philip Morris Products S.A. (part of Philip Morris International group of companies), PMI R&D, Neuchâtel, Switzerland
    The impact on indoor air quality when using e-cigarettes is expected to be very different to cigarette use and has been subject of numerous research papers. The published literature is often of somewhat limited value in evaluating the impact of e ...

    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 leakage and ...
