It is obvious that the solutions to modern odor control problems will in the future be developed in light of a more thorough undestanding of the chemical nature of odors and that the accent on development of control technology will rest firmly on this foundation. The development of practical solutions will result not from the hardware engineer but as a result of the odor chemist developing ingenious solutions which will be supported by hardware designs fashioned to make the best use of this new technology.
Our research effort continues with other fluorocarbon compounds, which may offer better end use performance and economic characteristics than those provided by FC-22 and FC142b. The goal is to find propellants that present the greatest consumer advantages should circumstances dictate the replacement of the propellants presently used.
When one considers the long history of the use of fragrances, their broad distribution, and the extent of exposure to them, one is impressed with the very few examples of injury to humans that can be attributed to these materials, The only problems reported have been occasional rashes on the skin, and even more specificalIy, light-induced rashes. And yet there is a persistent myth in the cosmetic industry that any problem encountered in the safety testing of a new cosmetic must be attributable to the fragrance component. Only systematic screening of all of the materials used in fragrances by an independent scientic body, and systematic and voluntary conscientious response by the industry to eliminate ingredients shown to cause harm can dispel this myth.
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.
The flavor and fragrance industry has, for a long time, been conscientious about the safety of its products, From the very beginning it has participated in the development of safety evaluations and regulations for flavors and fragrances, both in the US and Europe. In this paper the developments of both flavors and fragrances will be summarized. The difference in approach in these two areas will be discussed, as well as possible future developments.
