9780470777787: The Chemistry and Biology of Volatiles

"Coming to a conclusion, this wonderful, informative and very interesting book presents an excellent overview of small volatile organic compounds and their role in our life and environment. Really fascinating is the entirety of scientific disciplines which were addressed by this book." –Flavour and Fragrance Journal, 2011

"... this book deserves to be a well-used reference in the library of any laboratory specialising in VOC". –Chemistry World, 2011

Volatile compounds are molecules with a relatively low molecular weight allowing for an efficient evaporation into the air. They are found in many areas of our everyday-life: they are responsible for the communication between species such as plants, insects or mammals; they serve as flavours or fragrances in many food products or perfumed consumer articles; and they play an important role in atmospheric chemistry.

This book takes an interdisciplinary approach to volatile molecules. Review-style introductions to the main topics in volatile chemistry and biology are provided by international experts, building into a broad overview of this fascinating field.

Topics covered include:

  • The structural variety of volatile compounds
  • Biogeneration of volatiles
  • Synthesis of natural and non-natural volatiles
  • Analysis of volatiles
  • Volatile compounds as semiochemicals in plant-plant or plant-insect interactions
  • Volatiles in pest control
  • Pheromones and the influence of volatiles on mammals
  • Olfaction and human perception
  • Volatiles as fragrances
  • The generation of flavours and food aroma compounds
  • Stabilisation and controlled release of volatiles
  • The impact of volatiles on the environment and the atmosphere

From the Back Cover:

Volatile compounds are molecules with a relatively low molecular weight allowing for efficient evaporation into the air. They are found in many areas of everyday life: they are responsible for the communication between species such as plants, insects or mammals; they serve as flavours or fragrances in many food products or perfumed consumer articles and they play an important role in atmospheric chemistry.

The Chemistry and Biology of Volatiles takes an interdisciplinary approach to volatile molecules. Review-style introductions to the main topics in volatile chemistry and biology are provided by international experts, building into a broad overview of this fascinating field. Topics covered include:

  • volatiles – an interdisciplinary approach
  • biosynthesis and emission of isoprene, methylbutanol and other volatile plant isoprenoids
  • analysis of the plant volatile fraction
  • plant volatile signalling: multitrophic interactions in the headspace
  • pheromones in chemical communication
  • use of volatiles in pest control
  • challenges in the synthesis of natural and non-natural volatiles
  • the biosynthesis of volatile sulphur flavour compounds
  • thermal generation of aroma-active volatiles in food
  • human olfactory perception
  • perfumery – the wizardry of volatile molecules
  • microencapsulation techniques for food flavour
  • profragrances and properfumes
  • reactions of biogenic volatile organic compounds in the atmosphere

The Chemistry and Biology of Volatiles is an essential overview of this important field for students and researchers in organic and bioorganic chemistry, biochemistry, flavour and fragrance research, pest control, olfactory perception, and atmospheric chemistry.

About the Author:

Dr. Andreas Herrmann is a research chemist at Firmenich SA, an international flavour and fragrance company, in Genève (Switzerland), working on the development of new fragrance delivery systems. He has published a series of research papers on the chemical release of volatiles under mild reaction conditions. He is the author or co-author of about 30 scientific publications and 10 international patent applications.
