Planar chromatography was used for one of the final steps of multistage analysis of chosen organic compounds (polycyclic aromatic compounds, nicotine and their derivatives) occurring in tobacco smoke as well as their transformation products. These investigations present various development and detection modes, as well as the possibility of new stationary phase C30 application.
The application of planar chromatography has enabled the identification and quantification of many organic pollutants dangerous for human health and the assessment of chosen people groups exposed to tobacco smoke living in the region of Upper Silesia in Poland.
