GC-MS analysis of the anal sac secretion from the hog-nosed skunk,Conepatus mesoleucus, showed two major volatile components, (E)-2-butene-1-thiol and (E)-S-2-butenyl thioacetate. Minor volatile components identified from this secretion were phenylmethanethiol, 2-methylquinoline, 2-quinolinemethanethiol, and bis[(E)-2-butenyl] disulfide. 3-Methyl-1-butanethiol, a major component in the defensive spray of the striped skunk,Mephitis mephitis, and the spotted skunk,Spilogale putorius, was absent… 
Volatile Components in Defensive Spray of the Hooded Skunk, Mephitis macroura
GC-MS analysis of the anal sac secretion from the hooded skunk, Mephitis macroura, showed the following seven major components comprised 99% of the volatiles in this secretion: (E)-2-butene-1-thiol,
Identification of the volatile component(s) causing the characteristic foxy odor in various cultivars of Fritillaria imperialis L. (Liliaceae).
To identify the component(s) causing the foxy odor, characteristic for some Fritillaria imperialis cultivars, the headspace of flower bulbs was analyzed using gas chromatography-olfactometry (GC-O)

Conepatus leuconotus (Carnivora: Mephitidae)
TLDR
The white-backed or American hog-nosed skunk is a sexually dimorphic species with a single white stripe along the back, and is 1 of 4 species in the genus Conepatus that occurs throughout Mexico and as far south as northern Costa Rica.
Volatile Cues Influence Host-Choice in Arthropod Pests

TLDR
This review documents the published data on airborne (volatile) chemicals emitted from non-human animals, highlighting the subset of these emissions that play a role in guiding host choice by arthropod pests and provides a rationale for future enquiries.
A preliminary study for identifying olfactory markers of fear in the rat
TLDR
Stressed rats emitted several substances that are known to function as alarm pheromones in insects, and when previously unstressed control rats were exposed to these same substances, they had a distinct behavioral fear response.
The reaction of Grignard reagents with Bunte salts: a thiol-free synthesis of sulfides.
TLDR
A Cu-catalyzed coupling of sodium thiosulfate with aryl and vinyl halides was developed to access S-aryl and S-vinyl Bunte salts, and this route to sulfides avoids the use of malodorous thiol starting materials or byproducts.
Recent advances in research of natural and synthetic bioactive quinolines.
TLDR
This review covers four main aspects, namely bioactive quinoline alkaloids, the biological activity and mechanism of action of quin Caroline-based compounds as well as various quinolines syntheses.
