Odour Threshold Values in Air, Water & other Media AND
Compilations of Flavour Threshold Values in Water &
other Media (2011 Editions)
- by L.J. van
Punter & Partners (see below).
Now finally available: an exhaustive
listing of all odour, flavour or taste threshold values of
chemical compounds, in total about 22,000 threshold values,
from the literature by L.J. van Gemert.
There are six compilations in two
volumes (all numbers below are
* 1,790 compounds with odour threshold
values in air;
* 1,860 compounds with odour threshold
values in water;
* 760 compounds with odour threshold
values in other media like beer, oil, starch, etc.;
* 2,160 compounds with flavour
threshold values in water;
* 1,010 compounds with flavour
threshold values in media like beer, oil, and other foods
* 680 peptides and derivatives with
flavour threshold values in water.
The present compilations are as
complete as possible from the early days of olfactory and
gustatory research till 2010 and are based on original
sources from the literature.
In the six compilations almost 2,930
references are listed. The nomenclature is standardised in
accordance with the IUPAC rules and all concentration units
used were converted, if necessary, to mg/m3 for odour
threshold values in air and to mg/kg for odour or flavour
threshold values in water and in other media. But,
especially in the compilations with flavour threshold
values, more relatively simple trivial names have been used.
In a limited number of cases other concentration units, like
millimoles, have been listed too.
The compilations are delivered in two
books; one with odour threshold values and the other with
flavour threshold values.
