The fruiting bodies of fresh and wild Clitocybe odora, Lentinellus cochleatus and Agaricus essettei were investigated for volatile compounds by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis using hydro-distillation and solvent extraction techniques. The three mushroom species are well known to possess anise odors. The main volatile compounds of the three species were aromatic derivatives. Anise fragrance was due either to a single impact aroma compound, or to mixtures of volatile constituents… 
Volatile components of fresh Pleurotus ostreatus and Termitomyces shimperi from Cameroon
Abstract Odorous wild Pleurotus ostreatus and Termitomyces shimperi from Cameroon are highly appreciated for both their culinary value and their good taste. The edible mushrooms were investigated for
Volatiles of French Ferns and “fougère” Scent in Perfumery
While the “fougère” fragrance is claimed by the perfumers to be a fantasy scent, coumarin, (E)-2-hexenal, (Z)-3- hexenol and 1-octen-3-ol are the main odorous components of the perfumes belonging to the fougère accord family, suggesting that the foughère scent from the perf consumers’ imagination is a natural fragrance.
Volatile Composition of Six Horsetails: Prospects and Perspectives
Six horsetails were investigated for volatile organic compounds (VOC) by GC-MS using organic solvent extraction to detect isoprenoid derivatives from putative natural resources of great interest as bioactive litter and new potential functional feed ingredients.
Asplenioideae Species as a Reservoir of Volatile Organic Compounds with Potential Therapeutic Properties
The broad spectrum of odorous and bioactive VOC identified from the Asplenium, Ceterach and Phyllitis species are indeed of great interest to the cosmetic and food industries.
Biodiversity of Volatile Organic Compounds from Five French Ferns
Five French ferns belonging to different families were investigated for volatile organic compounds (VOC) by GC-MS using organic solvent extraction, finding that Holub, well-known for its lemon smell, contained the highest biodiversity of VOC.
Fruits of the plant were air dried for several days and cut into small pieces, which were subjected to oven dried for 24 hours at 45-50°C to effect further chopping. Cold methanol extract of fruits
Volatile Organic Compounds of six French Dryopteris Species: Natural Odorous and Bioactive Resources
Aerial parts of six Dryopteris species collected in France were investigated for volatile organic compounds (VOC) for the first time and resources are of great interest as a reservoir of odorous and bioactive compounds.
Mushroom flavour
Abstract Mushrooms and fungi not only present a fascinating world of shapes, both macro- and microscopic, but they are also an interesting source of flavours, fragrances and odours, e.g. garlic,
Flavors and Fragrances
The awareness that fungi produce enticing flavors is not new. Presumably it was their pleasant aroma that prompted the notorious Roman emperor Nero to name mushrooms “cibus deorum,” food of the gods.


Odoriferous compounds from liquid cultures of Gloeophyllum odoratum and Lentinellus cochleatus (Basidiomycotina)
Methyl 3-hydroxy-3,7-dimethyloct-6-enoate and 6-formyl-2,2-Dimethyl chromene are described for the first time as natural products.
Geosmin, a sesquiterpenoid compound responsible for the musty-earthy odor of Cortinarius herculeus, Cystoderma amianthinum, and Cy. carcharias
Geosmin, a sesquiterpenoid de- rivative, was identified as the key compound respon- sible for the musty-earthy aroma of these Basidiomy- cota.
The fenugreek odor of Lactarius helvus
3-Hydroxy-4,5-dimethyl-2(5H)-furanone, the hydroxy furanone derivative molecule with the characteristic aroma of Trigonella foenum graecum seeds, is the key compound responsible for the fenugreek odor of L. helvus.
Volatile Components of Mushroom (Agaricus subrufecens)
Volatile components of mushroom (Agaricus subrufecens) were extracted by the simultaneous distillation-extraction method. About 30 volatile components could be identified by GC and GC-MS analyses.
trans-2-Nonenal, the cucumber odor of mushrooms
Trans-2-Nonem\ was not found in the pure farinaceous or the rancid, oily or fishy/farinaceous variations of this fungal odor, so the odor description cucumber/Farinaceous is a valid category.
Volatile Components of Ten Frozen Mushrooms (Basidiomycetes)
ABSTRACT Twenty-nine volatile substances often frozen mushrooms (Grifola frondosa, Clitocybe nebularis, Clitocybe odora, Tricholoma sulfureum, Agaricus bisporus, Amanita ovoidea, Clitopilus prunulus,
Volatile Flavor Constituents of Fresh Marasmius alliaceus (Garlic Marasmius)
Comparative analyses of volatile flavor constituents of fresh wild Marasmius alliaceus (garlic Marasmius) were carried out by organic solvent extraction and dynamic headspace concentration using
2-Aminobenzaldehyde: the source of the sweet odor of Hebeloma sacchariolens
Fungi associated with the subterranean termite Reticulitermesflavipes in Ontario and the isolation of the pathogen Beauveria bassiana from ReticULitermes flavipes (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) are studied.
Production of Benzaldehyde and Benzyl Alcohol by the Mushroom Polyporus tuberaster K2606
The culture conditions of Polyporus tuberaster K2606 were investigated to find conditions with which much benzaldehyde and benzyl alcohol would be obtained. Strain K2606 reduced benzoic acid as well
