Data transferability between two MS-based electronic noses using processed cheeses and evaporated milk as reference materials

Pillonel, Laurent ; Bosset, Jacques-Olivier ; Tabacchi, Raphael

In: European Food Research and Technology, 2002, vol. 214, no. 2, p. 160-162

Electronic noses produce data which are difficult to transfer between identical instruments because of differences in the characteristics of "identical" instruments and because of sensor drift. The transportability of data is, however, essential for the setting up of databanks. Results of the present investigation, using processed cheeses and evaporated milk as reference materials, show that data...

Analytical methods for the determination of the geographic origin of Emmentaler cheese. Main framework of the project; chemical, biochemical, microbiological, colour and sensory analyses

Pillonel, L. ; Badertscher, R. ; Bütikofer, U. ; Casey, M. ; Dalla Torre, M. ; Lavanchy, P. ; Meyer, J. ; Tabacchi, Raphael ; Bosset, Jacques-Olivier

In: European Food Research and Technology, 2002, vol. 215, no. 3, p. 260-267

Emmentaler is a hard cheese produced and consumed in many countries. The authenticity of this cheese variety is becoming a matter of national importance with the imminent opening of the cheese market in Switzerland and the introduction of the PDO label for the Emmentaler Switzerland™. This paper is the first in a series reporting the search for parameters that make possible a geographic...

Défago, G. ; Ammon, H. U. ; Cagán, L. ; Draeger, B. ; Greaves, M. P. ; Guntli, D. ; Hoeke, D. ; Klimes, L. ; Lawrie, J. ; Moënne-Loccoz, Y. ; Nicolet, B. ; Pfirter, H. A. ; Tabacchi, Raphael ; Tóth, P.

In: BioControl, 2001, vol. 46, no. 2, p. 157-173

Within the framework of the European COST Action 816, afive-year collaboration between scientists from five Europeancountries has made an important contribution to biologicalcontrol of field and hedge bindweeds (Convolvulus arvensis and Calystegia sepium, respectively). A fungus Stagonosporaconvolvuli strain LA39, able to infect both field and hedgebindweed, was found in the...

White lupin has developed a complex strategy to limit microbial degradation of secreted citrate required for phosphate acquisition

Weisskopf, Laure ; Abou-Mansour, Eliane ; Fromin, Nathalie ; Tomasi, Nicola ; Santelia, Diana ; Edelkott, Iris ; Neumann, Günter ; Aragno, Michel ; Tabacchi, Raphael ; Martinoia, Enrico

In: Plant, Cell & Environment, 2006, vol. 29, no. 5, p. 917-927

White lupins (Lupinus albus L.) respond to phosphate deficiency by producing special root structures called cluster roots. These cluster roots secrete large amounts of carboxylates into the rhizosphere, mostly citrate and malate, which act as phosphate solubilizers and enable the plant to grow in soils with sparingly available phosphate. The success and efficiency of such a P-acquisition...

Isoflavonoid exudation from white lupin roots is influenced by phosphate supply, root type and cluster-root stage

Weisskopf, Laure ; Tomasi, Nicola ; Santelia, Diana ; Martinoia, Enrico ; Langlade, Nicolas Bernard ; Tabacchi, Raphael ; Abou-Mansour, Eliane

In: New Phytologist, 2006, vol. 171, no. 3, p. 657-668

• The internal concentration of isoflavonoids in white lupin (Lupinus albus) cluster roots and the exudation of isoflavonoids by these roots were investigated with respect to the effects of phosphorus (P) supply, root type and cluster-root developmental stage. • To identify and quantify the major isoflavonoids exuded by white lupin roots, we used high-pressure liquid...

Gas Chromatographic Enantiomer Separation of Atropisomeric PCBs Using Modified Cyclodextrins as Chiral Phases

Magnusson, J. ; Blomberg, L. G. ; Claude, Saturnin ; Tabacchi, Raphael ; Saxer, A. ; Schürch, S.

In: Journal of High Resolution Chromatography, 2000, vol. 23, no. 11, p. 619-627

Columns containing different types of cyclodextrin derivatives have been evaluated for chiral gas chromatographic separation of atropisomeric PCBs, o,p´-DDT and o,p´-DDD. Separation was attempted on columns containing mixed chiral selectors, and the performance of two closely related selectors was also examined. The cyclodextrins were: permethylated- β -CD (PM- β -CD),...

The Synthesis of Natural Acetylenic Compounds from Stereum hirsutum

Fkyerat, Abdellatif ; Dubin, Guy-Marie ; Tabacchi, Raphael

In: Helvetica Chimica Acta, 1999, vol. 82, no. 9, p. 1418-1422

The regioselective synthesis of two new acetylenic compounds, sterehirsutinal (1) and sterehirsutinol (2), isolated recently from culture medium of the fungus Stereum hirsutum, is reported.

Asymmetric Synthesis of the cis- and trans-3,4-Dihydro-2,4,8-trihydroxynaphthalen-1(2H)-ones

Couché, Emmanuel ; Fkyerat, Abdellatif ; Tabacchi, Raphael

In: Helvetica Chimica Acta, 2003, vol. 86, no. 1, p. 210-221

A short and efficient protocol for the asymmetric synthesis of cis- and trans-3,4-dihydro-2,4,8-trihydroxynaphthalen-1(2H)-one (1 and 2, resp.) is described, with a phthalide annulation as the key step. Introduction of a OH substituent at position 2 was performed by Sharpless dihydroxylation of a silyl enol ether or by means of an...

Lichen extracts as raw materials in perfumery. Part 2: treemoss

Joulain, Daniel ; Tabacchi, Raphael

In: Flavour and Fragrance Journal, 2009, vol. 24, no. 3, p. 105-116

This is a comprehensive review of extracts from the lichen Pseudevernia furfuracea (treemoss) that are used in the fragrance industry. Qualitative and quantitative analytical aspects are critically reviewed and the results are compared to those of the related oakmoss extracts. It is shown that more than 90 constituents have been identified so far in treemoss extracts, including 42...

Lichen extracts as raw materials in perfumery. Part 1: oakmoss

Joulain, Daniel ; Tabacchi, Raphael

In: Flavour and Fragrance Journal, 2009, vol. 24, no. 2, p. 49-61

A comprehensive review is presented on extracts of a lichen, oakmoss (Evernia prunastri), that are used in the fragrance industry. Analytical aspects are discussed in detail, from both qualitative and quantitative standpoints, mainly in relation to the industrial processing of the lichen. It is shown that more than 170 constituents have been identified so far in oakmoss extracts, including...
