Wiley, 2010. - 430 p. - Volatile compounds are molecules with a relatively low molecular weight allowing for an efficient evaporation into the air. They are found in many areas of our everyday-life: they are responsible for the communication between species such as plants, insects or mammals; they serve as flavours or fragrances in many food products or perfumed consumer articles; and they play an important role in atmospheric chemistry. This book takes an interdisciplinary approach to volatile molecules. Review-style introductions to the main topics in volatile chemistry and biology are provided by international experts, building into a broad overview of this fascinating field. Topics covered include: - The structural variety of volatile compounds - Biogeneration of volatiles - Synthesis of natural and non-natural volatiles - Analysis of volatiles - Volatile compounds as semiochemicals in plant-plant or plant-insect interactions - Volatiles in pest control - Pheromones and the influence of volatiles on mammals - Olfaction and human perception - Volatiles as fragrances - The generation of flavours and food aroma compounds - Stabilisation and controlled release of volatiles - The impact of volatiles on the environment and the atmosphere
