According to the United States Surgeon General's warning: "Tobacco Smoke Causes Serious Health Problems." In this research, N-nitrosamines were chosen for adsorption studies because they are some of the most potent carcinogenic compounds in toba
The binding energies for the adsorption of N-nitrosamines onto these clay adsorbent materials were calculated via a Clausius-Clapeyron relation from the infinite dilution inverse gas chromatography specific retention volume. These binding energi
Different adsorption trends were discovered and therefore different mechanisms were proposed. The mechanisms for the binding of N-nitrosamines on the clay adsorbent materials were: (1) ion-permanent dipole and additive London dispersive attracti
This investigation indicates that clays can be used to trap N-nitrosamines; and that the adsorption of N-nitrosamines on certain organoclay adsorbent materials is simultaneously stronger and selective. The results of this research indicate that
