Studies of olfaction and chemesthesis often rely on nominal, liquid-phase dilutions to quantify the chemicals tested, even though the associated vapor concentrations constitute the actual stimuli. For more than a decade now, our systematic studies of the olfactory and chemesthetic potency of members of homologous chemical series have routinely included quantification of vapors via gas chromatography. This article depicts the relationships between liquid- and vapor-phase concentrations for 60… CONTINUE READING
