Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopic characterization of the particulate phase of commercial tuibur


cigarette filter during smoking, while it gets settled during the manufacture of tuibur. The particulate phase of tobacco smoke contains mainly relatively non-polar organic substances that are described as semivolatile and non-volatile constituents. Identification of toxic and carcinogenic compounds present in smokeless tobacco products such as tuibur is a preliminary step in assessing adverse effects associated with its consumption. Characterization of the molecular vibrational frequencies of various semivolatile and non-volatile chemical components associated with the tar phase of tuibur was performed using FTIR spectroscopy to ascertain these organic components.
