Application


  • Contribution of phospholipase B to the formation of characteristic flavor in steamed sturgeon meat.: This study discusses how phospholipase B contributes to flavor formation in steamed sturgeon, including the role of isovaleraldehyde in enhancing sensory attributes, potentially applicable for food chemistry and biochemistry research (Yang Z et al., 2024).

  • Catalytic hydroboration of aldehydes and ketones with an electron-rich acyclic metallasilylene.: This research explores the catalytic activity of metallasilylene complexes in the hydroboration of aldehydes, including isovaleraldehyde, highlighting its significance in synthetic chemistry and materials science (Kapp L et al., 2024).

  • Effects of Storage in an Active and Spontaneous Controlled O(2)/CO(2) Atmosphere on Volatile Flavor Components and the Microbiome of Truffles.: This article examines how controlled atmospheric conditions affect the volatile profile of truffles, including isovaleraldehyde, providing insights into food preservation techniques and microbiome interactions (Li Q et al., 2024).

  • GC-MS, GC-IMS, and E-Nose Analysis of Volatile Aroma Compounds in Wet-Marinated Fermented Golden Pomfret Prepared Using Different Cooking Methods.: Investigates how cooking methods impact the aroma profile of marinated pomfret, with a focus on isovaleraldehyde as a key volatile compound, relevant for studies on food quality and sensory analysis (Chen Q et al., 2024).
