Application

Valeraldehyde is used as a gaseous standard in the study of the sorptive loss pattern for volatile compounds.
Valeraldehyde has been used to study its time-weighted average sampling using solid-phase microextraction (SPME) device.
Valeraldehyde is used in flavoring compounds and as a rubber accelerator.

In this study, the sorptive loss patterns for volatile organic compounds were evaluated by gaseous standards containing 13 compounds (benzene, toluene, styrene, p-xylene, methyl ethyl ketone, methyl isobutyl ketone, isobutyl alcohol, butyl acetate, acetaldehyde, propionaldehyde, butyraldehyde, isovaleraldehyde, and valeraldehyde). The...

Upon hexanal-modification in the presence of NaCNBH(3), the oxidized B chain of insulin becomes mono- and further dialkylated on both the N-terminal and Lys(29) residues. A pseudo-MS(3) study was performed with a triple-quadrupole mass spectrometer on the different modified lysine-containing...

Induction of pumpkin (Cucurbita maxima Duch.) glutathione S-transferase (GST, EC 2.5.1.18) by aldehydes and related compounds was examined. All of the tested compounds induced pumpkin GST to different degrees, and it was found that (1) aldehydes induce GST directly and...

Soybean milk, which serves as a base for a variety of beverages, contains raffinose, stachyose, pentanal and n-hexanal; the former two may be responsible for flatulence after fermentation, whilst the latter two for a beany flavour. Twenty-seven strains of Bifidobacterium...
