This book is the long awaited completely revised and extended edition of Gunther Ohloff's standard work "Scent and Fragrances: The Fascination of Odors and Their Chemical Perspectives". The prominent chemists Gunther Ohloff, Wilhelm Pickenhagen, and Philip Kraft convey the scientist, the perfumer, as well as the interested layman with a vivid and up-to-date picture of the state of the art of the chemistry of odorants and the research in odor perception. The book details on the molecular basis of olfaction, olfactory characterization of perfumery materials, structure-odor relationships, the chemical synthesis of odorants, and the chemistry of essential oils and odorants from the animal kingdom, backed up by ca. 400 perfumery examples and historical aspects. It will serve as a thorough introductory text for all those interested in the molecular world of odors. This book is written for everyone who wants to know more about the molecular basis of odor, and the relationships between chemical structures and olfactory properties. The great structural diversity of odorants, their synthesis, natural occurrence and their structure?odor correlation demonstrate what a fascinating science Fragrance Chemistry indeed is.

Although many aspects of carotenoid research are comprehensively covered in recent monographs, the aroma chemistry of carotenoid-derived compounds has not been explored. This volume highlights the importance that carotenoid metabolites have in the flavor and fragrance industry. It provides state-of-the-art coverage of analytical and sensory characteristics of carotenoid-derived aroma compounds. The volume includes discussion on the (bio)generation and means for biotechnological and thermal formation as well as the occurrence and generation of carotenoid-derived aroma compounds in tobacco, tear, flower scents, fruits, spices, grapes, and wine.

The second edition of Handbook of Essential Oils: Science, Technology, and Applications provides a much-needed compilation of information related to the development, use, and marketing of essential oils. It focuses particularly on the chemistry, pharmacology, and biological activities of essential oils, with contributions from a worldwide group of expert authorities on their historical, biological, regulatory, and biotransformation aspects. Features in the Second Edition: New chapters on the natural variability of components that often occurs in essential oils and on the natural processes that cause adulteration of essential oils Revisions, updates, and expansions of previous chapters Splits a previous chapter on biological activities of essential oils into two separate chapters on biological activities and antioxidative properties The book covers a wide range of areas applicable to essential oils research, including sources, production, analysis, storage, transport, chemistry, aromatherapy, pharmacology, toxicology, metabolism, technology, biotransformation, application, utilization, and trade. It includes discussions of biological activity testing, results of antimicrobial and antioxidant tests, and penetration-enhancing activities useful in drug delivery. A continuation of its preceding edition that features enhanced and expanded information, the second edition of Handbook of Essential Oils provides you with a broad and authoritative knowledge base in the study and use of essential oils.

Using K9s for scent discrimination has been part of the forensic repertoire used to solve crimes for a number of decades in several European countries. Over the years, police forces have refined their approach to scent discrimination to reduce errors and make it as legally accountable as possible. Authors Adee Schoon and Ruud Haak emphasize that the dog does not pinpoint a suspect as the perpetrator, but merely indicates that there is or is not a scent connection between crime-scene evidence and the suspect. They provide detailed training methods and working methodologies for handlers who want to train their dogs in this important work, as well as procedures for gathering scent evidence from the scene of the crime. A detailed history also shows how methods have developed over the years, and why some procedures were no longer acceptable and needed to be changed.

Gunther Ohloff supplies the researcher and practitioner in the field with fascinating ideas and introduces the interested layman to the fascinating world of fragrance, scent, and perfumes. His book presents a complete and highly up-to-date survey of the molecular basis of odor and scents and of the specific structure-activity relationships between fragrances and their receptors. It also covers to a wide extent neurophysiological aspects of olfaction. The author also describes the methods employed in the chemical synthesis of fragrances and the chemical modification of flavour and fragrance materials of natural origin. The book is completed by a description of 25 interesting fragrances.

The volumes of this classic series, now referred to simply as "Zechmeister" after its founder, L. Zechmeister, have appeared under the Springer Imprint ever since the series' inauguration in 1938. It is therefore not really surprising to find out that the list of contributing authors, who were awarded a Nobel Prize, is quite long: Kurt Alder, Derek H.R. Barton, George Wells Beadle, Dorothy Crowfoot-Hodgkin, Otto Diels, Hans von Euler-Chelpin, Paul Karrer, Luis Federico Leloir, Linus Pauling, Vladimir Prelog, with Walter Norman Haworth and Adolf F.J. Butenandt serving as members of the editorial board. The volumes contain contributions on various topics related to the origin, distribution, chemistry, synthesis, biochemistry, function or use of various classes of naturally occurring substances ranging from small molecules to biopolymers. Each contribution is written by a recognized authority in his field and provides a comprehensive and up-to-date review of the topic in question. Addressed to biologists, technologists and chemists alike, the series can be used by the expert as a source of information and literature citations and by the non-expert as a means of orientation in a rapidly developing discipline.
