Looking beyond terpenes to explore the hidden flavour spectrum of cannabis

A newly-published paper describes how two-dimensional gas chromatography (GC×GC), coupled with the BenchTOF MS and ChromSpace software was used to uncover a host of new flavour and aroma compounds in cannabis.

Identification of soft drinks

This article discusses how immersive sportive extraction coupled with comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography and time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GCxGC–TOF MS) was used to compare flavour profiles from popular brand soft drinks with those of imitation products.

New Family of Aroma Compounds Found in Cannabis

Cannabis aroma is so complex, the volatile organic compounds responsible for its characteristic ‘skunk-like’ smell have eluded researchers until now. A recently published paper describes the discovery of a new family of volatile sulfur compounds in cannabis, which were proved to be responsible for its pungent aroma, using two-dimensional gas chromatography.

Enhanced evaluation of the authenticity of perfumes using GC×GC–TOF MS

This article shows how the comprehensive data acquired using GC×GC–TOF MS with Tandem Ionisation® can be processed in a single, automated workflow to uncover the subtle differences between brand and imitation fragrances for quality and authenticity evaluation.

Identifying Markers of Quality in Curry Powder Using GC×GC–TOF-MS

This article demonstrates how high-capacity sorptive extraction with trap-based focusing, coupled with enhanced separation by two-dimensional chromatography (GC×GC) and identification by time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOF MS), gives greater insight into the aroma profiles of curry powder.

Determining Fruit Quality

A new paper describing how thermal desorption coupled with two-dimensional gas chromatography–time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TD–GC×GC–TOF MS) was used to determine the effects of cold storage on the volatile aroma compounds of different peach cultivars.

SepSolve Analytical equipment used in food chemical fingerprinting study

A new article on the comprehensive fingerprinting of volatiles in food – “Capturing the Signature of Quality” – has been published in the May edition of LCGC Europe magazine.


27 Jul 2017

The development of Tandem Ionisation

Tandem Ionisation is the focus of an article published in The Analytical Scientist that explains how this technology was developed and ultimately commericalised for the BenchTOF series of time-of-flight mass spectrometers that we at SepSolve offer as part of our product range.
