New insights from the world of chemical senses
Who doesn't like the smell of caramel? However, the olfactory receptor that contributes decisively to this sensory impression was unknown until now. Researchers at the Leibniz Institute for Food Systems Biology at the Technical University of Munich (LSB) have now solved the mystery of its ...
Chemists of Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) are developing an artificial intelligence application which can predict which molecule structures will produce or suppress specific odours. The Volkswagen Foundation has granted the project 96,100 euros of funding for the next 18 ...
Odor-producing chemicals in earwax differ according to ethnic origin
Scientists from the Monell Center have used analytical organic chemistry to identify the presence of odor-producing chemical compounds in human earwax. Further, they found that the amounts of these compounds differ between individuals of East Asian origin and Caucasians. The findings suggest that ...
Approximately one third of all fragrances on the market contain vetiver oil as a key ingredient, for which no synthetic odorant is commercially available. Instead it has to be distilled from the dried roots of vetiver grass. To find out about the structural requirements of vetiver odorants, ...
A new study of the sense of smell lends support to a controversial theory of olfaction: Our noses can distinguish both the shape and the vibrational characteristics of odorant molecules.The study, in the journal Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, demonstrates the feasibility of the theory – ...
