CLAIMS

1. A cartridge for use in an aerosol-generating system, the cartridge comprising: a first compartment having a first air inlet and a first air outlet, the first compartment containing a nicotine source comprising a first carrier material impregnated with nicotine; and a second compartment having a second air inlet and a second air outlet, the second compartment containing an acid source comprising a second carrier material impregnated with an acid,

wherein one of the first and second compartments comprises a pair of susceptor elements arranged in contact with the carrier material within the compartment, and wherein the carrier material is arranged between the pair of susceptor elements.

2. A cartridge according to claim 1 , wherein at least one of the susceptor elements comprises a foil strip.

3. A cartridge according to claim 1 , wherein at least one of the susceptor elements comprises a mesh.

4. A cartridge according to claims 1 , 2 or 3, wherein at least one of the susceptor elements comprises a ferromagnetic stainless steel.

5. A cartridge according to any preceding claim, wherein:

the first chamber comprises a first susceptor element in contact with the first carrier material; and

the second chamber comprises a second susceptor element in contact with the second carrier material.

6. A cartridge according to claim 5, wherein:

the first susceptor comprises a first pair of susceptor elements, each of the first pair of susceptor elements being in contact with the first carrier material and the first carrier material being arranged between the first pair of susceptor elements; and

the second susceptor comprises a second pair of susceptor elements, each of the second pair of susceptor elements being in contact with the second carrier material and the second carrier material being arranged between the second pair of susceptor elements.

7. A cartridge according to any one of claims 1 to 6, wherein at least one of the susceptor elements comprises a mesh.

8. A cartridge according to claim 7, wherein each of the susceptor elements comprises a mesh.

9. A cartridge according to any preceding claim, wherein the first compartment and the second compartment are arranged in parallel within the cartridge.

10. A cartridge according to claim 9, further comprising a third compartment in fluid communication with the first air outlet of the first compartment and the second air outlet of the second compartment.

1 1. A cartridge according to any preceding claim, wherein the acid comprises lactic acid.

12. A cartridge according to any preceding claim, wherein the first carrier material is impregnated with the nicotine and a flavourant.

13. An aerosol-generating system comprising:

a cartridge according to any one of claims 1 to 12; and

an aerosol-generating device comprising:

a housing defining a cavity for receiving at least a portion of the cartridge; and

an inductive heater arranged at or around the cavity of the aerosol-generating device.

14. An aerosol-generating system according to claim 13, wherein the inductive heater comprises an inductor coil surrounding at least a portion of the cavity of the aerosol-generating device.
