      Nicotine is the predominant agent within tobacco smoke. Here, we deliver nicotine containing solutions (1 mg/ml) to the underside of simulated surfactant films and apply modelling to rationalise experimental findings. The presence of nicotine within the test zone at pH 7 and pH 9 caused deviation in surfactant film dynamics. Monolayers display reduced maximum surface pressure that can increase the work of breathing. Data acquired from the Gaussian 09 suite confirmed that nicotine molecules can displace integral components of pulmonary surfactant to cause an adverse effect on the breathing pattern.
