A simple, rapid and sensitive method for the determination of hexanal and heptanal in plasma by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) has been developed, which is based on polymer monolith microextraction (PMME) with in situ derivatization. 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine (DNPH) as a derivatizing

Hexanal and heptanal are endogenous aldehydes coming from membrane lipid oxidation, found in lung cancer patients' blood, and suggested as lung tumor biomarkers. Here the urinary matrix was investigated instead of blood and the difficulties related to the determination of

The effect of two different antioxidants, EDTA and green tea extract (GTE), used individually or in combination, on the light-induced oxidation of reduced fat soft cheeses (0.2 and 6% fat) was investigated. In samples with 0.2% fat, lipid hydroperoxides as

In this work, we developed a new approach to the analysis of the lung cancer biomarkers, hexanal and heptanal in human blood that was based on headspace single-drop microextraction (HS-SDME) with droplet derivatization, followed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Aldehydes

Most animals rely on olfaction to find sexual partners, food or a habitat. The olfactory system faces the challenge of extracting meaningful information from a noisy odorous environment. In most moth species, males respond to sex pheromone emitted by females
