Virgin olive oil (VOO) is the only food product requiring official sensory analysis to be classified in commercial categories, in which the evaluation of the aroma plays a very important role. The selection of parents, with the aim of obtaining new cultivars with improved oil aroma, is of paramount importance in olive breeding programs. We have assessed the volatile fraction by headspace-solid-phase microextraction/gas chromatography-mass spectrometry-flame ionization detection (HS-SPME/GC-MS-FID) and the deduced aroma properties of VOO from a core set of olive cultivars (Core-36) which possesses most of the genetic diversity found in the World Olive Germplasm Collection (IFAPA Alameda del Obispo) located in Cordoba, Spain...

A novel urea-formaldehyde (UF) monolithic column has been developed and exploited as a sorbent for hydrophilic in-tube solid-phase microextraction (in-tube SPME) of aminoglycosides (AGs). Because of the innate hydrophilicity, UF monolith showed high extraction efficiency towards these hydrophilic analytes. The adsorption capacities for target compounds dissolved in water/ACN (1:1, v/v) were in the range of 5.18-7.36μg/cm. Due to the lack of a chromophore, evaporative light scattering detector (ELSD) was selected as the detector for AGs, and coupled with the online in-tube SPME-HPLC system...

The enantiomer ratios of chiral volatile organic compounds in fruit distillates were determined by multidimensional gas chromatography using solid-phase microextraction (SPME) as a sample treatment procedure. Linalool and its oxides, limonene, α-terpineol, and nerolidol, were present at the highest concentration levels, while significantly lower amounts of β-citronellol and lactones were found in the studied samples. However, almost all terpenoids mainly occur as a racemic or near-racemic mixture; enantiomer distribution of some chiral organic compounds in fruit distillates correlated to a botanical origin...
