(44) Analyses of e-cigarette vapor yielded reductions in nicotine, carbon monoxide, tobacco specific nitrosamines (TSN) including N'-nitrosonornicotine (NNN), N'nitrosoanatabine (NAT), N'nitrosanabasine (NAB), and 4-(methylnitrosamino-1-(3-pyridyl)1-butanone (NNK), carbonyl compounds including formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, acrolein, and o-methylbenzaldehyde, volatile organic compounds such as toluene and pim-xyline, the metals cadmium, nickel, and lead, and polyaromatic hydrocarbons.
It is engaged in the development of dissolvable smokeless tobacco products that deliver fewer carcinogenic toxins (principally tobacco specific nitrosamines, or TSNAs), through the utilization of the innovative StarCured tobacco curing technology, and in sublicensing that technology to others.
