Syntheses and odor characteristics of 1-alkylthio-2-butanethiols, 1-alkylthio-2-butanols and their derivatives. We previously have proposed a presumption that most meaty flavor compounds have a common characteristic structural unit that contains sulfur or oxygen heteroatoms on the adjacent two carbon atoms (one of the heteroatoms should be a sulfur atom).

Bergamot Oil A number of years ago, Frey (1988) used the selective ion monitoring function of GC/MS to detect the addition of synthetic linalool and linalyl acetate by determining their impurities (dihydrolinalool and dihydrolinalyl acetate). He found that the addition of as little as 2% synthetic linalool and linalyl acetate to genuine bergamot oil could be detected.

Nitriles and amides represent two important families of organic compounds containing respectively, a CN or a CONR1R2 moiety. Their chemistries are very much intertwined because either family can serve as a feedstock for the other.

The essential oil from peppermint, Mentha x piperita L., is one of the most widely used oils by the flavor industry for mint flavoring. However, abundant literature and experts’ observations report the varying composition and organoleptic profiles of peppermint oils according to the region of production, climatic variation and harvest date.1-3

Essential oils and extracts of Mentha spicata have long been of high importance in food-product, perfumery and cosmetic applications due to their intense, pleasant, clear-fresh odor. In addition to this species of the Labiatae family, Mentha piperita L. (peppermint) and Mentha arvensis L. (cornmint) are also used extensively.8

Dramatic reductions in characterization and analysis times for essential oils were achieved using high speed gas chromatography (HSGC) and time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOFMS). High-speed separations were achieved with relatively short capillary separation columns operated with high carrier-gas flow rates and fast temperature programming. Unique features of TOFMS include high spectral acquisition rates and spectral continuity (constant ion-abundance ratios across chromatographic peak profile).
