    Chloride application: effects to nutrient assimilation, agronomic performance, and cured leaf chemistry of flue-cured tobacco

    VANN M.C.(1); FISHER L.R.(1); INMAN M.D.(1); HARDY D.H.(2)
    (1) North Carolina State University, Department of Crop & Soil Sciences, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.; (2) North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services – Agronomic Division, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    Chloride (Cl-) application in excess of 34 kg ha-1 has generally been discouraged in the production of U.S. flue-cured tobacco, due to the negative effects the nutrient can have on cured leaf yield, quality, and smoke sensory. However, fertilizer...

    Influence of the time of synthesis of SBA-15 on its effect as a catalyst reducing toxicant concentration in tobacco smoke

    JUÁREZ-SERRANO N.; MARCILLA A.; BELTRÁN M.I.
    University of Alicante, San Vicente del Raspeig, Spain
    In recent years, SBA-15 has been suggested as an additive for reduction of toxic compounds in tobacco smoke. The structure of this type of materials is strongly dependent on the synthesis conditions. The objective of the present work is to analyze...

    The effect of chloride application rate to the yield, quality, and chemical constituents of flue-cured tobacco

    PACE C.R.(1); VANN M.C.(1); FISHER L.R.(1); SEAGROVES R.(1); HARDY D.H.(2)
    (1) North Carolina State University, Department of Crop & Soil Sciences, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.; (2) North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services, Agronomic Division, Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.
    Chloride (Cl-) application rates that exceed 33.6 kg/ha are generally discouraged in the production of flue-cured tobacco due to the negative effects the micronutrient can impart to yield, quality, and smoke flavor/aroma. Despite the negative effects...

    Study of the decomposition of tobacco/citrate/SBA-15 mixtures in nitrogen and air atmospheres

    MARCILLA A.; BELTRAN M.I.; GOMEZ-SIURANA A.; MARTINEZ I.; BERENGUER D.
    Alicante University, Alicante, Spain
    Combustion is a complex physical-chemical process. The products of combustion strongly depend on the temperature and oxygen availability in the different zones of the cigarette. Potassium citrate is widely used as a cigarette ingredient, acting as a...

    Characteristics and composition of mainstream smoke from 10 RYO tobacco brands sold in Spain: effects of additives capable of reducing the evolution of carbon monoxide, nicotine, and TPM

    MARCILLA A.; BELTRAN M.I.; GOMEZ-SIURANA A.; MARTINEZ I.; BERENGUER D.
    Alicante University, Alicante, Spain
    In this study, 10 commercial roll-your-own (RYO) tobacco brands that together represent 40% of this market in Spain were smoked under ISO conditions. The 3R4F reference cigarette tobacco was also smoked for comparison. The mainstream smoke was...
