Description


  Smoke-free cigarette

Description

The invention relates to an insert for a smoke-free cigarette, wherein the insert comprises a substance comprising a nicotine compound.

The invention further relates to a smoke-free cigarette.

Smoke-free cigarettes, which give the smoker only nicotine or flavorings, are known in the art. For example, WO 2004/098324 A2 discloses a smoke-free cigarette which consists of two parts, one part being a reusable part with a thermo-plastic coating with vapor-deposited heat-reflecting coating, and also an air inlet opening and a heating source is introduced into the casing, that air flow channels in a star-shaped or wavy shape arise.

   In addition, a replaceable, non-reusable part with a nicotine aroma depot is provided.

The heat released by the heat source heats the air sucked in by a consumer through the air flow channels and passes through the depot so that the nicotine present in the depot, which is located in the vicinity of the mouthpiece or partially in the mouthpiece, and the flavorings release, which can be absorbed by the smoker after passing through the filter. The nicstic refill system described in this document has liquid nicotine in the NicotinAroma depot.

   Liquid nicotine is relatively difficult to handle.

In contrast, it is an object of the present invention to provide an insert for a smoke-free cigarette and a smoke-free cigarette, by means of which even without costly measures a flavor protection is possible and by means of a simple way a recording of nicotine or flavoring is possible.

This object is achieved by an insert for a smoke-free cigarette, wherein the insert comprises a substance comprising a nicotine compound, wherein the nicotine compound is a nicotine salt. By providing an insert comprising a nicotine salt, it is possible to provide nicotine in a form which is stable and firm on the one hand and holds the nicotine natroma on the other hand.

   The insert is preferably a container into which the substance can be introduced, and which is preferably at least partially permeable to air. The insert may preferably also be a body that is particularly solid and contains or consists of the substance. The body is then preferably at least partially permeable to air. The body, which then contains the corresponding substance, may for example be a pressed material or polycrystalline. Preferably, the nicotine salt is present as a powder and / or granules. The powder and / or granules may be present loosely or as a solid body in which the powder and / or granules are bonded together.

   The insert may further preferably comprise another flavoring agent, for example vanilla, menthol, cloves etc.

Preferably, the nicotine salt is applied liquid to a carrier material or introduced into a carrier material. By virtue of this form of nicotine salt according to the invention, aroma protection and good handling of nicotine are also possible, since this is carried in the carrier material and therefore no liquid nicotine, as in US Pat

State of the art, can leak. The carrier material may preferably be a granulate and / or a powder. It is also preferably provided a liquid-containing salt. The liquid may be water or, for example, glycol or the like.

   If preferably also a basic

Material is provided, a very efficient chemical reaction is possible, which releases nicotine from the nicotine salt under heat, which can then be consumed with the inhaled air correspondingly simple.

Preferably, the liquid-containing salt and / or the basic material is in powder or granular form.

Further preferably, the basic material and the nicotine salt are mixed together. Preferably, the liquid-containing salt is separated from the basic material and the nicotine salt.

   The insert may then preferably be incorporated into a smoke-free cigarette such that the liquid-containing salt is disposed at an upstream portion of a user-induced airflow, so that air humidified by the user is supplied to the basic material and / or the nicotine salt. Preferably, the liquid-containing salt, the basic material and the nicotine salt are mixed together.

A possibly provided flavoring substance is accordingly preferably also mixed with the other materials in the insert. The object is further achieved by a smoke-free cigarette with an insert according to the invention, wherein a heating device is provided, which is provided for heating the insert.

   Preferably, the heater at least partially encloses the insert.

If an energy storage device for supplying the heating device is preferably provided with energy, wherein an envelope of the cigarette is spaced from the energy store such that air can be flowed through in the forming intermediate space, a very efficient and user-friendly smoke-free cigarette is provided. The smoke-free cigarette is particularly simple if the heating device comprises a heating wire. The heating wire then serves to generate electrical heat. The energy store is preferably a primary cell or a secondary cell, which are popularly called battery or accumulator.

   Preferably, the liquid-containing salt is disposed in the insert at the air inlet end of the cigarette.

The invention will be described below without limiting the general inventive idea using exemplary embodiments with reference to the drawings. With regard to all details of the invention which are not explained in greater detail, reference is expressly made to the drawings. It shows:

Fig. 1 is a schematic sectional view of an inventive smoke-free cigarette.

Figure 1 shows a schematic sectional view of an inventive smoke-free cigarette 12. The smoke-free cigarette 12 includes a shell 13, which may also be a sleeve.

   In addition, a side facing away from the user in the use of smoke-free cigarette 21 and a side opposite this side, in which a filter 17 is provided, so a mouthpiece 20, is shown. In the smoke-free cigarette 12, an energy storage 15 is also provided, which may be for example a battery or an accumulator. The energy storage device 15 supplies a heating wire 14, which is wound spirally on the side of the cigarette 12 facing away from the user in the periphery radially around an inner region, which is formed as a cavity. In this cavity, a bag 10 comprising powder 1 1 or granules 1 1 'are introduced as an insert.

   In order to heat the front area or the user-remote area 21 of the cigarette 12, current is passed through switching contacts 19 through the heating wire 14, so that there is a corresponding heating. Heating may, for example, be carried out at 60 ° C. to 95 ° C., in particular preferably at about 80 ° C.

By heating, as will be shown below, nicotine from the material contained in the bag 10 in PuIverbzw. Release granular form, which can be consumed via an air flow 16 of the user. In Figure 1, the air flow 16 is indicated by arrows. The air flow passes through the bag 10 and the powder or granules 11 or 1 1 'through a cavity 18, which is defined by a region which is arranged between the shell 13 of the cigarette 12 and the energy storage 15.

   The

Air flow continues through the filter 17 to the consumer. The energy storage 15 is connected to the sheath 13 according to specify a distance. The energy storage can also be firmly connected to the shell 13. The connection or the connecting elements are not shown in FIG.

Instead of a bag 10 may also be a tobacco foil or porous

Paper such as a tea bag paper or a highly porous filter wrapping paper find use. The shape of the bag 10, or wrapper with the corresponding powder and granule contents, may be adapted to the shape of the cavity at the one end 21 of the cigarette 12 which faces away from the user in use. Thus, for example, it may be a shape that is cuboid or preferably cylindrical.

   The pouch 10 may be provided as a capsule wherein the capsule wrapping material is a relatively strong, brazed material. This may be aluminum or a relatively temperature-stable plastic.

The switching contacts 19, for example, then generate a switching contact with the energy storage 15 and the poles of the energy accumulator 15, not shown, when the bag 10 has been inserted into the corresponding cavity, the bag 10, the contacts 19 to the energy storage 15 and the poles, not shown, presses. It can also be provided a switch which causes a closure of a switch and thus a corresponding heating by the heating wire 14 and the heating wire 14.

In the case of the powder 11 or

   Granule 1 1 'is preferably a mixture of a nicotine salt, a water-containing

Salt and a basic powder. The nicotine salt may also be applied as an aqueous solution to an auxiliary substance, for example a cellulose strip, or incorporated or applied in another granulate or powder material. By heating the Powverbzw. Granulate mixture or material mixture is first water or another liquid that is contained in the water-containing or liquid-containing salt, for example in the form of an aerosol released. The aerosol then activates the basic powder and results in the chemical reaction that releases the nicotine from the nicotinic salt so that it is available to the consumer.

   It may be any of a form of nicotine salt, liquid-containing salt or basic powder, or various corresponding materials, i. two or more nicotine salts, two or more hydrous salts, or two or more basic powders.

Nicotinic salts are, for example, nicotine di-p-toluoyl tartrate

(CAS No .: 68935-27-3, powder) in question or nicotine hemisulfate (CAS No .: 65-30-5) in aqueous solution or nicotine hydrogen tartrate (CAS No .: 65-31 -6) in powder form in question. These materials can be purchased from Sigma-Aldrich Chemie GmbH, Germany. As basic salts or basic material, for example, calcium hydroxide (CAS No .: 1305-62-0), sodium carbonate (CAS No .: 497-19-8), potassium carbonate (CAS No .: 584-08-7) and / or calcium oxide (CAS No .: 1305-78-8). As hydrous salts or

   Powders or granules include, for example, sodium ammonium hydrogen phosphate (CAS No .: 13011-54-6), ammonium

Aluminum sulfate (CAS No .: 7784-26-1) and / or sodium phosphate (CAS No .: 10101-89-0) in question.

By introducing the said substances in granular form or powder form or on or in a carrier no extended measures for aroma protection must be taken. For example, it is not necessary to pack the individual inserts in blister packaging airtight.

   Moreover, it is possible to separate the granulated or powder-loaded part of the cigarette 12 from the heating part by a foil, for example a starch foil, so that the activation of the aroma or of the nicotine takes place only on heating and release of aerosol, for example water, glycol or the like , happens.

As an example, the following chemical reaction is shown, which takes place during the release of nicotine according to the invention.

In a reaction example comprising the substances sodium sulfate, calcium oxide and nicotine hydrogen tartrate, the following sequence results:

Expelling water by heating:

Na2SO4 - 1 OH2O- ^ Na2SO4 - (l0 - x) H20 + xH20

Representing the base:

CaO + H2O -> Ca (OH) 2

Converting nicotine salt into nicotine:

  

C10H15N2 <+> C4H5O6 <'> + Ca (OH) 2 -> C10H14N2 + CaC4H4O6 + 2H2O

Nicotinic acid tartrate nicotine calcium tartrate

In addition, other flavorings may be provided in powder or granular form, which are released by heating or chemical reaction. LIST OF REFERENCES
