The large number of often structurally similar compounds in fragranced products demands the high degree of separation only available with GC×GC, coupled with advanced TOF MS detection techniques such as Tandem Ionisation.

Evaluating the authenticity of branded perfumes

This study demonstrates 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.


Easy-to-learn workflows for quality control of essential oils

This study demonstrates the use of ChromCompare+ software to identify significant differences across lemon oil batches for quality control and authenticity studies, as well as streamlined workflows to quickly classify samples of unknown origin.


Detailed characterisation of essential oils by flow-modulated GCxGC and Tandem Ionisation mass spectrometry

In this study, flow-modulated GCxGC–TOF MS with Tandem Ionisation is used to characterise essential oils in fine detail, allowing the in-depth comparison of their compositions that aids rigorous quality control, particularly in the fragrance industry.


Comparison of the aroma profiles of hops using dynamic headspace sampling with TD–GC–TOF MS

This study demonstrates the high performance of a dynamic headspace sampler with TD–GC–TOF MS analysis for investigating the complex aroma profiles from three varieties of hops.


Enhanced separation of hop oils by flow-modulated GCxGC–TOF MS

This study demonstrates the high performance of a flow-modulated GCxGC–MS system for the evaluation of complex hop oils, which allows effective modulation of even the most volatile components without the need for expensive liquid cryogen. Analyte speciation is also aided by Tandem Ionisation for simultaneous acquisition of hard and soft EI data.


Tackling the extended list of fragrance allergens by flow-modulated GCxGC–TOF MS

This study investigates the use of flow-modulated GCxGC to analyse an 84-component allergen calibration standard, with simultaneous detection by TOF MS for confident identification and FID for robust quantitation. The validity of the method is then demonstrated with the examples of essential oils and a fragrance mix.
