Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are organic chemicals that have a high vapor pressure at ordinary room high vapor pressure results from a low boiling point, which causes large numbers of molecules to evaporate or sublimate from the liquid or solid form of the compound and enter the surrounding air, a trait known as example, formaldehyde, which evaporates from.

Volatile Organic Compound. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are a large class of low-molecular-weight, carbon-containing compounds characterized by their high volatility, low vapor pressure (≥kPa at 20°C), and low water solubility (Herrmann, ). From: New and Future Developments in Microbial Biotechnology and Bioengineering, Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) mean any compound of carbon which participate in atmospheric photochemical reactions, excluding carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, carbonic acid, metallic carbides or carbonates, and ammonium carbonate [12].Moreover, VOCs are a generic term for organic chemicals whose boiling point is low and volatilize easily into the atmosphere at room temperature.

The volatile organic compounds of eight weakly polluted small rivers and brooks in SW Germany were studied by GC-MS.

Special emphasis was placed on the differentiation between biogenic and. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are carbon-compounds that easily evaporate at room temperature. Toxins are biologically produced poisons; mycotoxins are those toxins produced by microscopic fungi.

All fungi emit blends of VOCs; the qualitative and quantitative composition of these volatile blends varies with the species of fungus and the Cited by: Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are organic chemicals that have a high vapor pressure at ordinary room high vapor pressure results from a low boiling point, which causes large numbers of molecules to evaporate or sublimate from the liquid or solid form of the compound and enter the surrounding air.

For example, formaldehyde, which evaporates from paint, has a boiling point. In recent past, bioactive volatile compounds have been reported from two endophytic fungi, Phoma sp. and Nodulisporium sp., which produce biologically active volatile compounds having fuel.

Air laden with biodegradable volatile organic compounds is passed sequentially through a first filter bed (26) containing a biologically inert filter media, a second filter bed (32A) containing a biologically active filter media, and a third filter bed (32B) containing a biologically insert filter media.

Microalgal biomass can be used in creating various functional food and feed products, but certain species of microalgae and cyanobacteria are known to produce various compounds causing off-flavour. In this work, we investigated selected cyanobacterial strains of Spirulina, Anabaena, and Nostoc genera originating from Serbia, with the aim of determining the chemical profile of volatile Cited by:   Other problems are the need for complete removal of residual low volatile solvents, such as n-BuOH, trifluoroacetic acid and ammonia and the transfer of the active compounds from the stationary phase into the agar layer by diffusion (Cos et al., ).

Life as we know it (i.e., terran life, as discussed in Chapter 1) is based on organic chemistry and is constructed of carbonaceous organic materials are pervasive in Earth’s crust and constitute an extensive chemical and isotopic record of past life that far exceeds what is recorded by visible fossils.

1 The ubiquity of coal, organic-rich black shales, and petroleum. Haloalkane or alkyl halides are the compounds which have the general formula "RX" where R is an alkyl or substituted alkyl group and X is a halogen (F, Cl, Br, I).

Haloalkanes have been known for centuries. Chloroethane was produced synthetically in the 15th century. The systematic synthesis of such compounds developed in the 19th century in. Certain endophytic fungi belonging to the Hypoxylon genus have recently been found to produce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that have potential relevance as hydrocarbon fuels.

Here, a recently discovered Hypoxylon sp. (BS15) was demonstrated to also produce VOCs, but with diminished VOC production after an extended period of in vitro by: 1. The opercula contains biologically active compounds and produces smoke containing volatile scent compounds, consistent with their identification as the most likely source of onycha, a Cited by: 4.

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) have a low molecular weight and a lower boiling point, which facilitate quick evaporation or sublimation and create a higher vapor density.
