Carbonyls are formed during the combustion of tobacco products, and many are included on FDA’s list of harmful and potentially harmful constituents (HPHCs). The purpose of this project is to measure quantities of carbonyls using a validated testing method in a variety of cigarettes currently marketed in the US. A total of 35 different cigarette products will be examined under both the International Organization of Standardization (ISO) and Canadian Intense (CI) smoking regimens. The results may be used to inform HPHC-related regulatory activities.
