Flavor and Fragrance


The Polyarc® System:
Quantifying Complex Mixtures

Fragrance and flavor analysis or duplication requires knowledge of the exact concentration of molecules in complex mixtures. To obtain this, gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) is typically used. While GC/MS is highly useful for determining the identity of molecules in a mixture, it is not as efficient at quantifying molecules, especially when standards are not available or when the calibration process can be cumbersome. The Polyarc system coupled with a flame ionization detector (FID) can be used to accurately quantify complex mixtures using a single injection without using calibration standards.
