General description

Pentyl acetate is a straight chain ester. It is an odorant and its odor threshold has been evaluated by sensory panel methods. High pressure phase behavior of type I has been reported for its binary mixtures with CO2. Solubility of these solvent mixtures was observed to increase with the rise in temperature at constant pressure.

Application

Pentyl acetate may be used as odorant to compose the library of odorants to evaluate the responses of olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) to various odorants (having different structures and odors).
Banana essence. Used as test odorant in studies of olfactory function and in studies of the psychosocial effects of odor.

Mammals can perceive and discriminate myriad volatile chemicals as having a distinct odor. Odorants are initially detected by odorant receptors (ORs) on olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) in the nose. In the mouse, each OSN expresses one of ∼1000 different OR...

There is increasing evidence that schizophrenia patients have difficulties in the hedonic appraisal of odors. In a prior study, we assessed olfactory hedonic perception birhinally and found that males with schizophrenia failed to attach the appropriate hedonic valence to a...

In experimental practice, odors are commonly applied to only one nostril for recordings of olfactory event-related potentials (OERPs), but the lateralization aspect of the OERP response is unclear regarding both stimulated nostril and cortical topography. The purpose of the present...

We showed recently that behavioural and striatal dopaminergic (DA) responses obtained in latent inhibition are crucially dependent on the parahippocampal region, the entorhinal cortex. In the present study, we investigated the influence exerted by the hippocampal ventral subicular region (SUB)...

Despite aromatherapy's popularity, efficacy data are scant, and potential mechanisms are controversial. This randomized controlled trial examined the psychological, autonomic, endocrine, and immune consequences of one purported relaxant odor (lavender), one stimulant odor (lemon), and a no-odor control (water), before...
