In recent years there has been increased interest in the tobacco industry driven primarily by high-profile disclosures made during health-related litigation in the United States of America. Over the years, tobacco companies and others have filed many patents aimed at reducing the concentrations of known harmful chemicals in tobacco smoke. The literature contains a number of articles and patents which mention the potential for platinum group metals to decrease these harmful effects. This review attempts to summarise the published work in which the platinum group metals have been discussed with respect to cigarette use.
