Summary for Patent: 4,917,120

Title: Nicotine impact modification
Abstract:Compositions comprising nicotine and a volatile nicotine-miscible substance may be used to create sources of modulated nicotine vapor. The modulation of nicotine vapor may be one of quantity or of perceived physiological impact or a combination of both. The substance should have a volatility somewhat similar to that of nicotine and have a normal boiling point between about 175.degree. C. and about 275.degree. C. These compositions may be placed in the nicotine reservoir of a personal oral nicotine inhaler. Esters are preferred nicotine miscible substances, particularly when substantially flavorless and generally recognized as safe for human consumption. Nicotine and nicotine-miscible substance in a weight/weight ratio between about 0.5 and 40.0 are emplaced in a nicotine reservoir, for example absorbed in a porous polyethylene item, for insertion into the tubular passageway of a smokeless cigarette.
