Tracing the Movement of Electronic Cigarette Flavor Chemicals and Nicotine from Refill Fluids to Aerosol, Lungs, Exhale, and the Environment.

Given the high concentrations of nicotine and flavor chemicals in EC (electronic cigarette) fluids, it is important to determine how efficiently they transfer to aerosols, how well they are retained by users (exposure), and if they are exhaled into the environment where they settle of surfaces forming ECEAR (EC exhaled aerosol residue).
