Proceedings from the joint meeting of the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Society of the Chemical Industry on 'flavours & fragrances' held in 2004 where speakers from academia and industry alike presented their recent research results including aspects of Natural Products, Foods and Flavors, Perfumery and Olfaction, and last but not least Fragrance Chemistry.

Research is more than ever central to the flavor and fragrance industry with its constant demand for innovation and its frequently changing trends. Especially, in the classic and well-explored domains of musks and amber odorants fascinating new discoveries were made quite recently, which proves the endless possibilities in the search for new aroma chemicals as is well reflected the conference papers that are collected here.

Fragrance and fragrance materials by definition elicit a biological response, serve as versatile signals, trigger the sense of smell and taste in various ways - and every odorant design is nothing more than 'chemistry probing nature'. But Fragrance Chemistry can also document and preserve the biodiversity of scents.
