The Aging of Sidestream Tobacco Smoke Components in Ambient Environments
A large number of sidestream smoke components have been measured over a 50-min time period in a well-defined experimental room. The results show a variable rate of decay following smoking which would suggest that extrapolation from a single measured “marker” to other potential smoke components should be performed with caution.
