What is Nicotine Salt?
Nicotine salt is a form of nicotine found in tobacco leaves. Unlike the nicotine typically used in e-liquids for electronic cigarettes, nicotine salt is a compound that contains nicotine and other organic components. It may be combined with one or more chemical substances found in tobacco leaves, but the result is the same - the formation of a more stable molecule.
The form of nicotine typically used in e-liquids for electronic cigarettes is called "freebase" nicotine. This form of nicotine is not attached to any other substance and is generally considered more desirable for vapor and other purposes because it is a more "volatile" (i.e. easily evaporated) form of nicotine.
What are the obvious effects of nicotine salt e-liquid?
Nicotine salt e-liquid allows users to get more nicotine more quickly.
It is more cost-effective. If the user is not simply a cloud chaser, but only uses e-cigarettes to satisfy their nicotine addiction, nicotine salt e-liquid allows users to satisfy their expected nicotine intake with less e-liquid.
The shelf life of nicotine salt e-liquid is longer. Nicotine salt is more stable than freebase nicotine, which means that the nicotine salt base can be stored for a longer period without nicotine degradation.
Users do not need a high-powered device. Nicotine salt e-liquid can effectively deliver nicotine, so users do not need a high-powered box mod. Even a simple small device can meet the user's nicotine intake needs.
What is the difference between nicotine salts and e-liquids?
Nicotine salt is one of the raw materials used to make e-liquids. It cannot be used alone and is usually combined with PG, VG, and flavorings to make e-liquids. E-liquids can be injected into cartridges, used with atomizers, or used with disposable electronic vaporizers.
How are nicotine salts made?
Synthesizing nicotine and its salts involves using organic synthesis and medicinal chemistry theory, using appropriate chemical reagents as starting materials, and obtaining them through a series of chemical reactions under specific reaction conditions. In other words, an organic ketone is condensed into an organic alcohol under certain conditions and then reduced to the target product under reducing agent conditions, resulting in the final product.
To produce nicotine salt, the following steps are needed:
Prepare the raw materials, chemicals, and reaction equipment needed to make nicotine salt.
Add the raw materials and chemicals to the reaction equipment.
Wait for the materials to undergo a chemical reaction in the equipment.
Retrieve the reaction product.
Concentrate the reaction product.
Separate the reaction product.
Purify the reaction product.
Test the reaction product, at this point the nicotine salt has been produced.
Check if the produced product meets the standards.
Store the finished product in inventory.
