  • CarbonCarbon Bond Formation by Lewis Superacid Catalysis
    • Abstract: Diverse intramolecular cyclizations involving the formation of CC bonds are described using catalytic methodologies based on Lewis superacids. Examples are presented on 1,6‐diene cyclizations to gem‐dimethylcyclohexane structures. Tandem cyclization of trienes are described to afford bicyclic structures in reactions involving rearrangements. Hydroarylation of olefins and of allenes is developed in catalytic FriedelCrafts‐type coupling processes, which can give rise to tandem reactions. The olfactory evaluation of the series of prepared compounds is also presented.

  • Synthesis and Olfactory Characterization of Silicon‐Containing
           Derivatives of the Acyclic Lily‐of‐the‐Valley Odorant
    • Abstract: 5‐Methyl‐4‐methylidene‐6‐(trimethylsilyl)hexanal (1b), a sila analog of the acyclic lily‐of‐the‐valley odorant 5,7,7‐trimethyl‐4‐methylideneoctanal (1a), and the Si‐containing derivatives 2–6 were prepared in multistep syntheses, starting from Cl3SiH and Cl2SiMe2, respectively. Compounds 1b, 2–6, and their new precursors were characterized by elemental analyses (C, H, N) and NMR spectroscopic studies (1H, 13C, 15N, and 29Si). To gain more information about the structureodor correlation in the family of lily‐of‐the‐valley or ‘muguet’ odorants, C/Si analogs 1a/1b and derivatives 2–6 were evaluated for their olfactory properties.
  • Present and Future of Cyclopropanations in Fragrance Chemistry
    • Abstract: The elaboration of new cyclopropanation methods is expected to make selectively new Δ‐compounds available, either as precursors or as new ingredients with superior olfactory impacts. The improvement of cyclopropanation processes through understanding of reaction mechanisms reduces costs and environmental impact. Givaudan is the leading ‘Flavor & Frangrance’ company which successfully brings Δ‐molecules to the market. Javanol®, for example, with its unique performance exemplifies the product of an efficient industrial cyclopropanation of a dienol precursor. Serenolide®, Toscanol®, and Pashminol® are other high‐impact Δ‐fragrance ingredients manufactured at Givaudan. This review describes our journey from advanced SimmonsSmith methodology using Zn carbenoids, to Al‐ and Mg‐mediated cyclopropanation techniques in the context of related alternative cyclopropanation methods for the transfer of the CH2 group onto CC bonds. The resulting cyclopropane products are themselves interesting substrates for further transformation to other flavor and fragrance compounds. Throughout this Review, the notation Δ refers to the presence of a cyclopropane ring, i.e., a ‘Δ‐compound’ is defined as a compound that contains a cyclopropyl substituent or a ‘fused cyclopropa’ component, or a ‘spiro‐cyclopropane’ moiety.
  • Carotenoid‐Cleavage Activities of Crude Enzymes from Pandanous
    • Abstract: Carotenoid degradation products, known as norisoprenoids, are aroma‐impact compounds in several plants. Pandan wangi is a common name of the shrub Pandanus amaryllifolius. The genus name ‘Pandanus’ is derived from the Indonesian name of the tree, pandan. In Indonesia, the leaves from the plant are used for several purposes, e.g., as natural colorants and flavor, and as traditional treatments. The aim of this study was to determine the cleavage of β‐carotene and β‐apo‐8′‐carotenal by carotenoid‐cleavage enzymes isolated from pandan leaves, to investigate dependencies of the enzymatic activities on temperature and pH, to determine the enzymatic reaction products by using Headspace Solid Phase Microextraction Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrophotometry (HS‐SPME GC/MS), and to investigate the influence of heat treatment and addition of crude enzyme on formation of norisoprenoids. Crude enzymes from pandan leaves showed higher activity against β‐carotene than β‐apo‐8′‐carotenal. The optimum temperature of crude enzymes was 70°, while the optimum pH value was 6. We identified β‐ionone as the major volatile reaction product from the incubations of two different carotenoid substrates, β‐carotene and β‐apo‐8′‐carotenal. Several treatments, e.g., heat treatment and addition of crude enzymes in pandan leaves contributed to the norisoprenoid content. Our findings revealed that the crude enzymes from pandan leaves with carotenoid‐cleavage activity might provide a potential application, especially for biocatalysis, in natural‐flavor industry.
  • StructureOdor Relationships of Semisynthetic β‐Santalol
    • Abstract: A series of eleven β‐santalol analogs, including nine new derivatives, was prepared by semisynthesis from natural (−)‐(Z)‐β‐santalol and studied by gas chromatography‐olfactometry (GC‐O) to characterize their olfactory properties and potencies. These compounds and 45 others selected in the literature were used to build three olfactophores by molecular modelling. Three models were obtained that gather structural and physicochemical constraints that will be useful for further design of new sandalwood odorants.
  • Antioxidant and Sensorial Properties of Linden Honey with Dried Apricots
    • Abstract: The total phenol (TPh) and flavonoid contents (TFd), and antioxidant and sensorial properties of linden honey (LH) with dried apricots (20, 30, and 40%) were evaluated. TPh increased 4.3 times for LH40 (from 23.96 to 102.87 mg gallic acid equiv./100 g honey), while increase of TFd was slightly lower, ca. 2.9‐fold for LH40 (from 18.11 to 51.72 mg rutin equiv./100 g honey). Based on HPLC analysis, the most dominant phenolic compound was gallic acid (11.14 mg/100 g honey in LH and 42.65 mg/100 g honey in LH40). In three different assays, the antioxidant activity increased with increasing concentration of apricots in honey. The values varied from 13.36 for LH to 7.06 mg/ml for LH40; the values ranged from 189.83 for LH to 11.23 mg/ml for LH40; the RP0.5 (reducing power) values ranged from 169.00 for LH to 27.60 mg/ml for LH40. Based on the correlation analysis, it is obvious that TPh and TFd were associated with the antioxidant activities of honey samples. A high degree of correlation existed between antioxidant activities of honey samples and TPh (R from 0.945 to 0.996) and TFd (R from 0.805 to 0.934). Obtained scores for individual sensory properties indicated very good quality of honey with dried apricots.
  • Development of New Natural Extracts
    • Abstract: For over the past 20 years, a remarkable development in the study and search of natural products has been observed. This is linked to a new market trend towards ecology and also due to new regulations. This could be a rupture, but also a real booster for creativity. Usually, in the flavor and fragrance field, creativity was boosted by the arrival of new synthetic molecules. Naturals remained the traditional, century‐old products, protected by secrecy and specific know‐how from each company. Regulatory restrictions or eco‐friendly certification constraints like hexane‐free processes triggered an important brainstorming in the industry. As a result, we developed new eco‐friendly processes including supercritical CO2 extraction, allowing fresh plants to be used to obtain industrial flower extracts (Jasmine Grandiflorum, Jasmine Sambac, Orange blossom). These extracts are analyzed by GC, GC/MS, GCO, and HPTLC techniques. New or unusual raw materials can also be explored, but the resulting extracts have to be tested for safety reasons. Some examples are described.
  • Unravelling the Scent of Vetiver: Identification of Character‐Impact
    • Abstract: Vetiver oil is a highly esteemed basic ingredient of modern perfumery, but the nature of the constituents that really impart its typical and most sought woody‐earthy scent has remained controversial. Indeed, vetiver oil is considered as one of the most complex essential oils, being mostly composed of several hundreds of sesquiterpene derivatives with a large structural diversity. Its complexity has hindered the direct identification of its odoriferous components. We thus aimed at using a combination of GC×GC/MS and GC‐Olfactometry in order to identify most of its odor‐impact constituents. The olfactory analysis of vetiver oil and vetiveryl acetate revealed a huge variety of odors in both products. While khusimone has almost unanimously been recognized as the most characteristic vetiver odorant, we have identified several even more important contributors to the typical vetiver character.
  • Deorphanization and Characterization of Human Olfactory Receptors in
           Heterologous Cells
    • Abstract: Olfaction plays an indispensable role in human and animals in self and environmental recognition, as well as intra‐ and interspecific communication. Following the discovery of a family of olfactory receptors (ORs) by Buck and Axel in 1991, it has been established that the sense of smell begins with the molecular recognition of a chemical odorant by one or more ORs expressed in the olfactory sensory neurons. Therefore, characterization of the molecular interactions between odorant molecules and ORs is a key step in the elucidation of the general properties of the olfactory system and in the development of applications, i.e., design of new odorants, search for blockers, etc. The process putted in place at ChemCom to improve the expression of ORs at the cytoplasmic membrane of the HEK293 cell and assays enabling large‐scale deorphanization, and to characterize the interaction between chemical odorants and ORs is described. The family of human ORs includes ca. 400 putatively functional ORs which are GPCRs (G protein‐coupled receptors); to date over 100 human ORs have been deorphanized.
  • Synthesis and Sensory Studies of Umami‐Active Scaffolds
    • Abstract: The class of 2‐isopropyl‐5‐methylbicyclo[4.1.0]heptane‐7‐carboxamides, 1–4, has been identified as potent umami‐tasting molecules. A scalable synthesis of this challenging scaffold and new sensory insights will be presented. Interestingly, the umami characteristics differ remarkably, depending on constitutional and stereochemical features of the parent scaffold. During our studies, we could identify the carboxamide moiety as a crucial factor to influence the umami intensity of these scaffolds. In addition, the configuration of the cyclopropyl moiety exerts some influence, whereas the absolute configuration of the menthyl scaffold, at least the tested D‐ and L‐configuration, is less important.
  • A Green and Sustainable Approach: Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the
           Asymmetric l‐Menthol Process
    • Abstract: Takasago has been devoted to producing l‐menthol since 1954, and our long history of manufacturing this important aroma chemical is reviewed here. The current asymmetric catalytic process had its 30th anniversary in 2013. Our l‐menthol process is considered carbon‐neutral, and, therefore, ‘green’ and sustainable. It uses renewable myrcene obtained from gum rosin as a starting material. In addition, the Rh‐BINAP (=2,2′‐bis(diphenylphosphino)‐1,1′‐binaphthyl) catalytic system is highly efficient. This pathway not only leads l‐menthol, but a variety of 100% biobased aroma chemical products as well. By measuring the 14C levels in a material, one can determine the percentage of carbon that is biobased. This biobased assay, described as the ratio plant‐derived C/fossil‐derived C, can clarify how renewable a product really is. This will be highlighted for several of Takasago's key aroma chemicals.
  • Thioether Profragrances: Parameters Influencing the Performance of
           Precursor‐Based Fragrance Delivery in Functional Perfumery
    • Abstract: A series of thioether profragrances was prepared by reaction of different sulfanylalkanoates with δ‐damascone and tested for their release efficiencies in a fabric‐softener and an all‐purpose cleaner application. Dynamic headspace analysis on dry cotton and on a ceramic plate revealed that the performance of the different precursors depended on the structure, but also on the particular conditions encountered in different applications. Moreover, profragrances derived from other α,β‐unsaturated fragrance aldehydes and ketones were synthesized analogously and evaluated using the same test protocol. Thioethers were found to be suitable precursors to release the corresponding fragrances, but neither the quantity of profragrance deposited from an aqueous environment onto the target surface, nor the amount of fragrance released after deposition could be linearly correlated to the hydrophilicity or hydrophobicity of the compounds. Different sets of compounds were found to be the best performers for different types of applications. Only one of the compounds evaluated in the present work, namely the thiolactic acid derivative of δ‐damascone, efficiently released the corresponding fragrance in both of the tested applications. Profragrance development for functional perfumery thus remains a partially empirical endeavour. More knowledge (and control) of the various application conditions are required for an efficient profragrance design.
