  1. Comparison of the aromatic profile of traditional and modern types of Huang Jiu (Chinese rice wine) by aroma extract dilution analysis and chemical analysis

    Shuang Chen, Yan Xu and Michael C. Qian

    Research aimed at investigation of the aroma profile differences between two major types of Huang Jiu. Comparative aroma extract dilution analysis revealed 33 and 24 odor-active regions with a flavor dilution (FD) factors ≥ 64 in two types of Huang Jiu. Quantitative analysis and odor activity value analysis showed that vanillin, sotolon, and phenolic compounds might be responsible for the aroma profile differences between two types of Huang Jiu.

  2. Volatome analysis approach for the taxonomic classification of tree exudate collection using Proton Transfer Reaction Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry

    Natural resins possess a various and complex composition and many techniques have been applied in order to obtain considerable chemical information but no exploratory work has been conducted using the Proton transfer reaction Time of flight Mass Spectrometry (PTR-ToF-MS). In our study we successfully determined the volatile profiles of 31 different tree natural resins assessing the possibility of correctly identify the taxonomic position of the trees by the analysis of their exudates VOCs aromatic profiles.
