Flavor and Fragrance Materials: 1991.

FLAVOR and FRAGRANCE MATERIALS - 1991. 386 pages. Price: 123.50 [pounds] (USA: Allured Publishing Corp)

This ring-bound text carries the subtitle Worldwide reference list of materials used in compounding flavours and fragrances. Its various sections are entitled: Scientific literature reviews, Alphabetical listing of flavour and fragrance materials, Numerical listing by FEMA number, Numerical listing by CAS number, Suppliers of flavour and fragrance materials, Broker/ dealer list, and an advertisers list.

This is the 7th compilation, the 1st was published back in 1977. One of the early problems encountered was the difficulty of which name to use for certain flavour compounds. The publishers have sought to use the most popular name or trade name, and in the case where a single name has been used to identify a variety of separate and distinct substances, they have endeavoured to provide individual listings. To allow full use of this information a series of code numbers have been published against each material so that the various official definitions can be checked from their sources wherever they are published. Whilst this sounds complicated, it is all fully explained.

The amount of information packed in between these covers is vast and at the same time it is totally tabular, which means reading in the accepted sense of that word is not possible. However, the amount of information provided is enormous for those in the flavouring field. Most important sections at the end of the text list suppliers around the world.
