Comprehensive chemical characterization of e-cigarette liquids using high-resolution Orbitrap GC-MS
DescriptionElectronic cigarettes were introduced in 2007 as alternative to conventional tobacco products, and their use has significantly increased worldwide. Despite their growing popularity, little is known about the potential impact of e-cigarettes on human health. This is especially important with regards to the presence of flavoring compounds, solvents, additives, and other components intentionally or unintentionally added with unclear long-term effects.
