Skoog ‘n Holler. Ch 26-27.
Contributor: Paul Tschida, 2013
Content: A technical guide containing information about headspace analysis via GC-MS, including basic principles, troubleshooting, and applications.
Reliability and Usefulness: Considering that it is a technical guide, it seems very reliable. It would be very helpful in providing an easy way to analyze the fragrances in a substance.
A Technical Guide for Static Headspace Analysis Using GC
Contributor: Madison Wilson, 2013
Content: Describes the basic principles of headspace analysis, information on the instrumentation and sampling, headspace applications, and a few other things.
Reliability and Usefulness: Seems reliable. Was helpful in understanding how headspace analysis works, and how sample is injected.
Spectral Database for Organic Compounds
Contributed by: Koty Emery, 2015
Content- This is a great database that contains MS, Carbon NMR, HNMR, IR, Raman, and ESR Spectra for many organic compounds.
Reliability & Usefulness – This resource would be helpful for obtaining reference spectra during the flavoring, volatile compounds, and CYOA portions of the course.
Mass Spectrometry: How it works and how to interpret it
Contributed by: Kyle Milke, 2016
Content- This is a really good website on mass spectrometry. This website describes how the instrument works and also how to read the fragmentation patterns. It even has a small interactive action where you can see how the molecules spit based on their M/Z.
Reliability & Usefulness – This source is reliable because it is made by someone at Michigan State University. It is also helpful in understanding the fragmentation patterns produced by molecules.
