When searching the perfumery or flavor use of a chemical, novel or not, two places in each classification system should be searched: all organoleptic use class(es), and the chemical per se class. At a minimum, the search should cover the U.S. Classification system, the International Patent Classification, the standard chemical literature (e.g. Beilstein and Chemical Abstracts), and the standard literature of our industry: Bedoukian’s Perfumery and Flavoring Synthetics, Arctander’s Perfume and Flavor Chemicals (Aroma Chemicals) Vol. I and II, and the Fritzsche library bulletin.
There are over 1700 substances used as flavoring materials in the United States. Many of these are in use in Europe as well. This compilation is an attempt to list all such substances alphabetically both by principal name and by all synonyms as well as to provide reference to the various lists both in the U.S. and Europe that contain these substances. This listing has no legal status. It should, therefore, be used for reference purposes only.
