Trace elements present in Indian cigarette tobacco and cigarette smoke have been reported earlier. This paper presents trace element concentrations in chewing and snuff tobaccos determined by Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis. The levels of Br, Co, Cr, Fe, Mn, Zn, etc., present in different brands of chewing and snuff tobaccos are compared in two types of tobacco as well as with similar data from other countries.
