Application Note: Analysis of volatile organic compounds in durian by static headspace and ITEX-DHS GC-MS
5 May 2022

In this application note, the volatile compounds of Durian were extracted with two different headspace modes, static and dynamic headspace modes under relatively mild heat. Static headspace is mostly used to analyze the most abundant volatile compounds. While, dynamic headspace, due to its ability to concentrate analytes, can detect compounds even in the parts per billion (ppb) range down to the odor thresholds. Both headspace methods work fully automated and solventless, which is a big advantage in reducing manual labor-intensive work and provides a green analytical method to laboratories.
