A simplified approach for nicotine quantification in electronic cigarette liquids using GC-Orbitrap mass spectrometry
DescriptionSince the introduction of electronic cigarettes in 2007, their use has increased worldwide as an alternative to conventional tobacco cigarettes. Electronic cigarette liquids (e-liquids) can contain nicotine, a highly addictive drug that is toxic in high doses, may increase heart attack risk, and can affect reproductive health. Studies have shown that nicotine can also interfere with memory and attention processing especially in adolescents.
