Publisher Description

“Coming to a conclusion, this wonderful, informative and veryinteresting book presents an excellent overview of small volatileorganic compounds and their role in our life and environment.Really fascinating is the entirety of scientific disciplines whichwere addressed by this book.” -Flavour and FragranceJournal, 2011

“...this book deserves to be a well-used reference inthe library of any laboratory specialising in VOC”.-Chemistry World, 2011

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

This book takes an interdisciplinary approach to volatilemolecules. Review-style introductions to the main topics involatile chemistry and biology are provided by internationalexperts, building into a broad overview of this fascinatingfield.
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 orplant-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 theatmosphere
