Our research into e-cigarettes

The swift evolution of the e-cigarette market, the diversity of available devices and e-liquids, and the lack of consistent regulation around these products means that limited data are available on the possible health effects of using e-cigarettes.

British American Tobacco is undertaking research into a number of areas, including:

  • how the main categories of device perform under different conditions of use, and how users use e-cigarettes
  • the constituents of the aerosol, including the likelihood of thermal breakdown of the constituents of the formulation
  • developing procedures for assessing the effects on the human body of inhalation of the constituents of the aerosol.
