Farsalinos, Polosa among authors of new book on e-cig science

scribe-900x540Five of the best-known scholars studying e-cigarettes have collaborated to produce a book on the science and safety of vapour.

Konstantinos Farsalinos of the University of Patras in Greece and Riccardo Polosa of the University of Catania in Italy are among the authors of Analytical Assessment of e-Cigarettes: From Contents to Chemical and Particle Exposure Profiles, published this week by Elsevier.

Among other issues, the volume examines the chemistry and physics of vapour production and inhalation, and discusses measurement and assessment of harm.

    Farsalinos and Polosa, who are frequent collaborators, were joined in writing it by three other authors from the United States: I. Gene Gillman of Enthalpy Analytical, Stephen Hecht of the University of Minnesota, and Jonathan Thornburg of RTI International. The authors contribute individual sections.

    With a foreword by Neal Benowitz of the University of California in San Francisco, the book is aimed at the industry, regulators and public health professionals as well as scientists.

    It is part of the Emerging Issues in Analytical Chemistry series, which also includes a title on cannabis.
