Systematic investigations of the volatiles of fi eld-grown plants and shoot cultures of Gynura bicolor have been conducted to obtain indispensable plant physiological information for propagating plants of consistent quality. Volatiles obtained by solvent-assisted fl avour evaporation (SAFE) of solvent extracts from leaves of commercial cultivars, shoot cultures and their regenerates were analysed using gas chromatography (GC), GC-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and GC-olfactometry (GC-O). It was revealed for the fi rst time that this plant had the following chemical characteristics: fi eld-grown plants, i.e. those plants commercially cultivated in three diff erent regions of Japan and 7 month-old regenerates of shoot cultures had almost the same GC profi les; their major components were (E)-caryophyllene, α-humulene and bicyclogermacrene; in contrast, the major components of the shoot cultures were (Z,E)-α-farnesene, (E)-caryophyllene and α-copaene. The biosynthetic pathways for the sesquiterpenes found in these materials were presumed from the analytical results. Aroma evaluations using GC-O revealed that 1-octen-3-one, (Z)-1,5-octadien-3-one and trans-4,5-epoxy-(E)-2-decenal were aroma-impact compounds con- tributing to the characteristic metallic, green aroma, especially in the shoot cultures. In addition to these results, it was found that 2-isopropyl- and 2-isobutyl-3-methoxypyrazines were additional compounds related to the green, earthy aroma in the regenerates. These aroma-impact compounds were detected only because of the GC-O analysis. Copyright © 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

In this study, usual methods commonly applied to report the quantitative composition of flavours, fragrances and essential oils were compared. The MS determinations without response factors exhibited a lack of accuracy and reproducibility. FID provided better results, but the determinations were still unsatisfactory. The best results were obtained by true internal standardization in MS and FID, which is time-consuming for mixtures composed of many constituents. The use of a response factor datab...

A solid phase microextraction (HS-SPME)–GC–Tandem MS methodology was established for the analysis of 3-alkyl-2 methoxypyrazines in wine. Due to their low threshold value (2-methoxy-3-isobutylpyrazine, MIBP, 1 ng/l white wine, 10 ng/l red wine) these pyrazines contribute to the typical aroma especially of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon wines. The following fibers were tested, varying extraction time (30–80 min), extraction temperature (30–80 °C), ethanol concentration (1.25–6.25% vol) and...

The volatiles present in fresh, pink-fleshed Colombian guavas (Psidium guajava, L.), variety regional rojo, were carefully isolated by solvent extraction followed by solvent-assisted flavor evaporation, and the aroma-active areas in the gas chromatogram were screened by application of the aroma extract dilution analysis. The results of the identification experiments in combination with the FD factors revealed 4-methoxy-2,5-dimethyl-3(2H)-furanone, 4-hydroxy-2,5-dimethyl-3(2H)-furanone, 3-sulfany...

Three tasty (BR-139, FA-624, and FA-612) and two less tasty (R-144 and R-175) fresh greenhouse tomato cultivars, which significantly differ in their flavor profiles, were screened for potent odorants using aroma extract dilution analysis (AEDA). On the basis of AEDA results, 19 volatiles were selected for quantification in those 5 cultivars using gas chromatography−mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Compounds such as 1-penten-3-one, (E,E)- and (E,Z)-2,4-decadienal, and 4-hydroxy-2,5-dimethyl-3(2H)-furan...

In a black tea (Dimbula) infusion, the potent “sweet and/or juicy” odorants were identified as the cis- and trans-4,5-epoxy-(E)-2-decenals by comparison of their gas chromatography retention indices, mass spectra, and odor quality to those of the actual synthetic compounds. Of the two odorants, cis-4,5-epoxy-(E)-2-decenal has been identified for the first time in the black tea. On the basis of the aroma extract dilution analysis on the flavor distillate obtained using the solvent-assisted flavor...

Natural molecular evolution has created enzymes designed to catalyse a single reaction, by modifying enzymes that were once much less choosy. Yoshikuni et al. have developed a method of designing synthetic enzymes using a mathematical model that mimics the mechanisms of molecular evolution. They use the system to produce a series of novel sesquiterpene cyclases that use different reaction pathways to produce different end-products. This demonstrates the feasibility of exploiting the evolvability...

We examined the phenolic contents of 45 species of vegetables and their radical scavenging activities for 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl radical (DPPH·). High contents of phenolic compounds and strong DPPH·scavenging activities were observed in extracts from Nishiyomogi, Ryukyuyomogi, Aojiso, Moroheiya, Hosobawadan, Bajiru, Ensai, Yaeyamakazura, Suizenjina, Botanbouhuu and Uikyou. Eight of these vegetables are traditional foods in Okinawa. These showed strong radical scavenging activities for the...

Some recent advances in sampling and sample-preparation technologies for fragrance analysis are addressed in this review. Procedures, such as analytical distillation (vapor distillation and simultaneous distillation-extraction), headspace-manipulation methods (static and dynamic headspace analysis and headspace solid-phase microextraction) and direct extraction methods (such as liquid-liquid, solid-phase and supercritical fluid), will be discussed and critically evaluated. Contemporary applicati...

Cashew apple nectar is a secondary product from the production of cashew nuts and possesses an exotic tropical aroma. Aroma volatiles in pasteurized and reconstituted (from concentrate) Brazilian cashew apple nectars were determined using GC-MS and split, time-intensity GC−olfactometry (GC-O)/GC-FID. Methional, (Z)-1,5-octadien-3-one, (Z)-2-nonenal, (E,Z)-2,4-decadienal, (E,E)-2,4-decadienal, β-damascenone, and δ-decalactone were identified for the first time in cashew apple products. These comp...

Sesquiterpenes are structurally diverse, potent flavoring substances that significantly influence the aroma profile of grapes (Vitis vinifera L.) at the time of physiological ripening. To investigate these natural compounds, freshly harvested, ripe berries of the red wine variety Lemberger (Vitis vinifera subsp. vinifera L.) were analyzed using comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography (GC×GC) coupled to a time-of-flight mass spectrometer (TOF–MS) after headspace-solid phase microextracti...

ABSTRACTGynura bicolor DC. (G. bicolor) is a popular vegetable consumed in many Asian countries. In this study, chemical profile and antioxidant activity of G. bicolor ethanolic extract were studied. The extraction conditions were optimized and the total phenolic content of G. bicolor was determined as 10.38 mg of gallic acid equivalents per gram of dry matter. Twenty three compounds were identified in G. bicolor by HPLC-Q-TOF-MS analysis. Among them, 14 phenolic compounds, including ninepolyphe...

The use of essential oils (EOs) and their components is known since long in traditional medicine and aromatherapy for the management of various diseases, and is further increased in the recent times. The neuroprotective and anti-aging potentials of EOs and their possible mechanism of actions were evaluated by numerous researchers around the globe. Several clinically important EOs and their components from Nigella sativa, Acorus gramineus, Lavandula angustifolia, Eucalyptus globulus, Mentha piper...

The compositions of the essential oils obtained from leaves and stems of Gynura bicolor DC. were analyzed by GC–MS. One hundred eight components of these oils were identified. (E)-β-caryophyllene (31.42 %), α-pinene (17.11 %), and bicyclogermacrene (8.09 %) were found to be the main components of the leaf oil, while α-pinene (61.42 %), β-pinene (14.39 %), and myrcene (5.10 %) were the major constituents of the stem oil. We found 73 previously unidentified components in these oils from G. bicolor...

The antioxidant compounds in the stems and leaves of Gynura bicolor were studied. 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl and 2,2′-azinobis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) radical scavenging assays were employed to evaluate antioxidant capacity. By solvent extraction and Sephadex LH-20 column chromatography in sequence, ethanol extracts of Gynura bicolor stems and leaves were fractionated to obtain their active fractions, which were further separated to obtain 12 compounds: 1–8 from stems, and fou...
