Samples of burley, sun-cured, and flue-cured tobacco from the main producing areas of relevant tobacco types in China were collected to study the changes in tobacco-specific nitrosamine (TSNA) contents during storage and to investigate the effect of storage temperature and tobacco nitrate level on TSNA formation of cured tobacco. Contents of TSNAs in burley(More)
A specific and sensitive method was developed and validated to quantitatively analyze four tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNAs) in the particulate phase of mainstream cigarette smoke. Cigarette smoke particulate matter was collected according to ISO 4387. The particulate matter was extracted with acetic ether, cleaned up with a Supelclean ENVI-Carb(More)
Tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNAs) are carcinogenic chemicals found in tobacco plants. The increasing health consciousness of individuals had led to an increased interest in research on reducing TSNAs content. The aim of this study was to use a pot experiment in which exogenous substances were applied to burley tobacco to dissect the mechanism of TSNAs(More)
A fully automated method for the detection of four tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNAs) in mainstream cigarette smoke (MSS) has been developed. The new developed method is based on two-dimensional online solid-phase extraction-liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (SPE/LC-MS/MS). The two dimensional SPE was performed in the method utilizing two(More)
A fully automated analytical method was developed and validated by this present study. The method was based on two-dimensional (2D) online solid-phase extraction liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (SPE-LC-MS/MS) to determine nine aromatic amines (AAs) in mainstream smoke (MSS) simultaneously. As a part of validation process, AAs yields for 16(More)
