    Portioned moist snuff and snus, two subcategories of smokeless tobacco products (STP) were dissolution tested as a quality control test. A USP Apparatus 4 was employed to develop and validate the method. The method was assessed based on time to reach nicotine dissolution plateau, percentage difference between two profiles at each time point, relative standard deviation (RSD), and f1 (similarity) and f2 (dissimilarity) values. Based on these criteria, 200 ml volume and 8 ml/min flow were found be discriminatory. The amount of nicotine dissolved from the nine products varied widely (2.0-3.4, 2.1-4.1, 3.3-4.6, 5.5-6.6, 6.9-9.1, 11.5-14.2, 12.5-14.6, 14.0-15.5, and 15.5-19.6 mg/pouch at 60 min). RSDs of the dissolution ranges were more than 20% at earlier time points and less than 20% at later timepoints. The developed method produced distinct profiles for all the tested products, which was further confirmed by f1>15 and f2<50 values. In conclusion, the developed method was discriminatory and can be employed as a quality control test and to differentiate among moist snuff and snus products. Copyright © 2021.
