Several microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs) that can serve as potential chemical markers for microbial contamination in tobacco have been identified. Four different fungal species, Aspergillus niger (AN), A. ornatus (AO), Pencillium chrysogenum (PC) and Rhizopus stolonifer (RS), commonly reported in moldy tobacco were cultured and screened for MVOCs. Because the MVOCs emitted by a microbial species are substrate specific, the fungal strains were separately grown on potato dextrose agar…

Detection and Identification of Fungal Microbial Volatile Organic Compounds by HS-SPME-GC–MS
A method based on solid phase microextraction coupled to gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS) for the detection and identification of microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs) in the
Identification of microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs) emitted from fungal isolates found on cinematographic film
TLDR
The detection of microbial contamination and growth of cinematographic film utilising headspace solid phase micro-extraction coupled with Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry is reported, preventing valuable historical footage from being discarded due to health and safety concerns regarding spore inhalation, and enabling safe handling.
Analysis of Volatile Organic Compounds Emitted by Plant Growth-Promoting Fungus Phoma sp. GS8-3 for Growth Promotion Effects on Tobacco
TLDR
The results confirm the potential role of volatile organic compounds in the mechanism of growth enhancement by GS8-3 and find that the mixture of volatiles extracted from 3-day-old culture showed significant growth promotion in tobacco in vitro.
Effects of Growth Parameters on the Analysis of Aspergillus flavus Volatile Metabolites
Aspergillus flavus produces dangerous secondary metabolites known as aflatoxins, which are toxic and carcinogenic, and their contamination of agricultural products results in health issues and
Microbial volatile organic compounds.
TLDR
The most obvious health effect of MVOC exposure is eye and upper-airway irritation, however, in human experimental exposure studies, symptoms of irritation have appeared at MVOC concentrations several orders of magnitude higher than those measured indoors, supported by dose-dependent sensory-irritation response.

TLDR
A new method involving a modified CLSA preconcentration technique together with large volume injection GC/MS in order to attain analytical sensitivity equal to or better than olfactory sensitivity was developed, successfully applied to earthy-musty water samples that had remained unsolved by conventional techniques, thus proving its effectiveness.

TLDR
In order to widen the applicability of MVOC analysis, it is necessary to increase this analysis by including more volatiles by active sampling on Anasorb 747 and selected ion monitoring on a mass spectrometer equipped with a quadropole detector.
