Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) are combustion-less battery-powered devices that are able to vaporize a liquid solution. Existing studies have found various amounts of hazardous carbonyl compounds (e.g., formaldehyde, acetaldehyde and acrolein) generation from ecigarettes, posing public health concerns. In this paper, we reviewed the range of hazardous carbonyls emission and the range of operating temperatures in e-cigarettes reported in literature. Further, we discussed product design /operating factors that can potentially affect carbonyls emission from e-cigarettes. We concluded that the operating temperature inside heating unit of e-cigarette is one of key factors that influence carbonyls emission, and identified questions that need to be answered in future studies.
