Biosynthesis of Plant Volatiles: Nature's Diversity and Ingenuity

Plant volatiles are lipophilic molecules with high vapor pressure that serve various ecological roles that are synthesized by enzymes that produce multiple products from a single substrate or act on multiple substrates.

Phenylpropanoid biosynthesis.

This review aims to give an update on the various facets of the general phenylpropanoid pathway, which is not only restricted to common lignin or flavonoid biosynthesis, but feeds into a variety of other aromatic metabolites like coumarins, phenolic volatiles, or hydrolyzable tannins.
