Imperial Group Limited (Has a 1982 patent on an alternative nicotine delivery system): Has a 1982 patent on an alternative nicotine delivery system


Imperial Group Limited has a 1982 patent #4,340,072 for an alternative nicotine delivery system: Cigarette-like device with a fuel rod core surrounded by inhalant material. Among the reasons why most people smoke conventional cigarettes is that they wish to inhale an aerosol containing nicotine. The aerosol material may, as an alternative to a flavourant solution, comprise a solution of a flavourant and/or nicotine in triacetin orbenzyl bensoate. Any psycho-active orphysiologically active compound such as ephedrine or a nicotine/ephedrine mixture may be used. (J. Slade 3/25/94 table 2).
