Behavior of 3-isobutyl-2-hydroxypyrazine (IBHP), a key intermediate in 3-isobutyl-2-methoxypyrazine (IBMP) metabolism, in ripening wine grapes.

Abstract

3-Isobutyl-2-hydroxypyrazine (IBHP) is thought to be a key intermediate in both the biosynthesis and degradation of the herbaceous smelling 3-isobutyl-2-methoxypyrazine (IBMP), but its behavior during the growing season is not well understood. First, an improved method for IBHP quantification was developed. A deuterated IBHP standard was added to samples… (More)
