Phenolic acids (gaffic, vanillic, syringic and ellagic acids), phenolic aldehydes (vaniffin, syringaldehyde, coniferaldehyde and sinapaldehyde) and furanic derivatives (furfural, 5-methylfurfural and 5-hydroxymethylfurfural) were quantified in commercial American and French oak chips.

Likewise, the… CONTINUE READING
