This booklet offers for the 1st time a unmarried finished resource of data at the analytical chemistry of nicotine and comparable alkaloids. The editors have introduced jointly scientists from academia and the tobacco to explain the cutting-edge of the chemistry and analytical equipment for size of nicotine. either the scope and element of the booklet are striking. Chapters describe the background, pharmacology and toxicology of nicotine, the biosynthesis of nicotine and different alkaloids within the tobacco plant, the overall chemistry of nicotine and the analytical methodologies which were used to degree nicotine and comparable alkaloids in organic specimens, in tobacco and pharmaceutical items and in tobacco smoke. there's additionally a complete evaluation of the chemistry and toxicology of nicotine-derived nitrosamines, an enormous category of tobacco cancer causing agents.

Leaf cuttings (Blattstecklinge) of N. rustica, which had developed roots in culture, were subjected to repeated excision of portions of their root tissue, and their nicotine contents were compared to those of uninjured rooted cuttings of similar age. Root tissue that had been removed was replaced by active growth. The lamina of rooted cuttings, whose roots had been cut four times over a period of nearly six months, contained nearly three times as much nicotine as did lamina of undisturbed rooted cuttings.
