New research from Essentra Scientific Services (ESS) has found that dioxins are not present at detectable levels in cigarette mainstream smoke.
The new research, carried out by Dr. William Guthery, analytical chemist at ESS, drew on an innovative gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry analysis to demonstrate that dioxins, which are cited by the US Food and Drug Administration as harmful and potentially harmful constituents, were not present at detectable levels in the American-blend and Virginia cigarettes tested.
ESS, which is part of the Filter Products division of Essentra plc, has now published its latest findings into the levels of chlorinated dioxins and furans found in mainstream cigarette smoke.
