      Simultaneous distillation-extraction (SDE) combines, in a single step, hydro-distillation of volatiles from a sample with continuous solvent extraction of the solutes dissolved in the aqueous distillate. The solvent extract containing the isolated flavour volatiles can be subsequently analysed by gas chromatography. The present guidelines concern the isolation of flavouring substances by SDE, based on the experience of the authors in laboratories of the flavour industry.

    1. Volatile constituents of vetiver: a review (pages 26–82)

      Emilie Belhassen, Jean-Jacques Filippi, Hugues Brévard, Daniel Joulain and Nicolas Baldovini

      Article first published online: 22 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ffj.3227

      A comprehensive and critical compilation of the volatile constituents of vetiver root (Chrysopogon zizanioides L.) is presented in order to clarify some of the discrepancies related to the characterization of vetiver oil constituents. The nature of the main odour impact components of this material is also discussed.

    1. Thymyl esters derivatives and a new natural product modhephanone from Pulicaria mauritanica Coss. (Asteraceae) root oil (pages 83–90)

      Article first published online: 15 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ffj.3223

      Root essential oil of Pulicaria mauritanica Coss. (Asteraceae) collected from western Algeria was analysed using a combination of chromatographic [CC, GC/FID, GC(RI)] and spectroscopic [GC–MS, 13C-NMR] techniques. Thirty-eight identified compounds, including 16 thymyl and carvacryl esters derivatives, accounted for 90.4% of the whole composition. A new natural compound had been isolated and the structure was elucidated as 1S,2S,5S,8S-modhephan-3-one.

    1. Odorant volatile sulfur compounds in cat urine: occurrence of (+/−)-3,7-dimethyloct-3-sulfanyl-6-en-1-ol and its cysteine conjugate precursor (pages 91–100)

      Christian Starkenmann, Yvan Niclass, Isabelle Cayeux, Robert Brauchli and Anne-Claire Gagnon

      Article first published online: 6 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ffj.3216

      Fermented urine extract was analysed by a GC–MS coupled to an olfactory port. Sulfur compounds are the major contributors to cat urine odour. Other compounds contributing to aged cat urine odour are mainly indole and para-cresol. The occurrence of S-(1-hydroxy-3,7-dimethyl-6-octen-3-yl)cysteine in male cats is described for the first time

    2. Syntheses of the fragrance hydroxyambran using hydrogenation methods (pages 101–107)

      Article first published online: 14 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ffj.3218

      An effective approach for the preparation of the valuable fragrance 2-cyclododecylpropan-1-ol (trade names: Hydroxyambran®, Amberwood®) from an easily available mixture of three related unsaturated esters as starting material was identified by comparison of two complementary hydrogenating synthesis pathways. Both routes contain a heterogeneously catalysed step for the hydrogenation of the C=C double bonds in the hydrocarbon moiety and a homogeneously catalysed hydrogenation step for the hydrogenation of the ester function. The more effective of the two investigated pathways is able to provide a high target product yield.

    3. Are monoterpenoids and phenylpropanoids efficient inhibitors of acetylcholinesterase from stored product insect strains? (pages 108–112)

      Article first published online: 10 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ffj.3220

      Activity of the AChE inhibited by monoterpenoids and phenylpropanoids was measured.

      Different result were obtained depending on compound applied, insect, and strain.

      This information should be taken into account when essential oils or monoterpenoids, or phenylpropanoids are used in organic farming

    4. Preparation and biological activity of nanocapsulated Glycyrrhiza glabra L. var. glabra (pages 113–119)

      In this study, natural polymers, chitosan and alginate were used for preparing nanocapsules containing optimal ratio 10:10 mg/ml of turmeric oil to G. glabra extract. In the preparation of nanocapsules, a three-step procedure involving emulsification, cross-linking with calcium chloride and solvent removal was used. The results showed that turmeric oil-to-extract ratio, surfactant and molecular weight of chitosan all affect the size of the nanocapsule produced.
