Identification of hydroxymethylpyrazines using mass spectrometry

Bohman, Bjorn; Flematti, Gavin; Barrow, Russell


Pyrazines are well-known natural products that are present in bacterial odours and food flavouring agents and are used as insect pheromones. Recently, a number of hydroxymethylpyrazines have been identified as thynnine wasp pheromones and orchid semiochemicals that are essential for pollination in sexually deceptive plants. These compounds are present in low amounts in complex blends, making GC-MS (including high-resolution techniques) the method of choice for their structure elucidation. We...[Show more]
