Chemistry and Technology of Flavours and Fragrances
February 2009, Wiley-Blackwell
With contributions mainly coming from industry based experts,
Chemistry & Technology of Flavours and Fragrances
provides a detailed overview of the synthesis, chemistry and
application technology of the major classes aroma compounds. With
separate chapters covering important technical aspects such as the
stability of aroma compounds, structure – odour relationships
and identification of aroma compounds, this book will be essential
reading for both experienced and graduate level entrants to the
flavour & fragrance industry. It will also serve as an
important introduction to the subject for chemists and
technologists in those industries that use flavours and fragrances,
eg food, cosmetics & toiletries, and household products.

* Evaluates recent developments in the industry, providing
experienced readers with a convenient review of the latest advances
and how they are likely to impact on the industry
* Chapters of flavour and fragrance application illustrate how the materials are actually used, and contain working formulations to guide the reader in the development of new flavour and fragrance preparations* Detailed appendix linking chemical structure to common names and tradenames, providing an indispensable guide to this complex and often misleading area
