Chemical Composition of myblu™ Pod-System E-Cigarette Aerosols: A Quantitative Comparison with Conventional Cigarette Smoke

In this study, two commercially available myblu™ e-liquids (1.6% nicotine, tobacco flavour; 1.6% nicotine, menthol flavour) in a myblu pod-system vaping device were analysed and compared to published data for cigarette smoke. A total of 55 chemical emissions were characterised. The myblu products were analysed for the four principal e-liquid ingredient (nicotine, propylene glycol, glycerol and water) as well as 51 further constituents of public health interest (carbonyls, phenolics, volatile organic compounds [VOCs], metals, tobacco-specific nitrosamines [TSNAs], polyaromaticamines [PAAs], and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons [PAHs]). Testing of the myblu aerosols indicate low or no detectable levels of the toxicants tested. Overall myblu yielded <1μg/puff of the toxicants tested compared to the reported cigarette yield of 381μg/puff.
