Volatiles Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

The Chemistry and Biology of Volatiles
edited by Dr. Andreas Herrmann

The Chemistry and Biology of Volatiles takes an interdisciplinary approach to volatile molecules. Coverage of the main topics in volatile chemistry and biology are provided by international experts, building into a broad overview of the 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
