    This recommended practice enables the quantification of volatile compounds in flavourings to be made by gas chromatography with flame-ionization detection, without having authentic compounds available, and also in many cases it can avoid time-consuming calibration procedures. The relative-response factors can be predicted from the molecular formula of the compound, and can be applied to compounds containing the atoms C, H, O, N, S, F, Cl, Br, I, and Si, providing that the molecular formula and number of benzene rings in the analytes are known.

  2. Terpene hydroperoxide chemistry in citrus oils; reaction with endogenous aldehydes to form peroxyhemiacetals

    A series of peroxyhemiacetals, derived from terpene hydroperoxides and endogenous aldehydes, were found to be components in a variety of common citrus oils. The peroxyhemiacetal formation was shown to be reversible, a fact that must be considered when running analysis for terpene hydroperoxides.

    Nanocapsules-loaded styrallyl acetate produced by complex coacervation improved the thermal stability of the core oil.

  5. LogP measurement of a highly hydrophobic properfume: evaluation of extrapolation of RP-HPLC results and impact of chemical moieties on accuracy

    Current databases lack trustful references to accurately estimate logP >8. Extrapolation from HPLC retention factor vs. logP regression is feasible for logP > 8. Impact of standards on the accuracy is critical when extrapolating. Direct logP measurement of low logP standards is compulsory to avoid systematic bias. Accuracy of the estimation can be calculated from the prediction interval of the logK vs. logP regression,
