Exploring human scent with instruments and canines Chemistry and Physics Faculty Proceedings, Presentations, Speeches, Lectures (2012)
Human scent is defined as the most abundant volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are present in the headspace of a collected scent sample. The types of compounds that constitute human scent originate from the secretions ...
Analysis of hand odor utilizing various extraction techniques to provide a comprehensive assessment of volatile components Chemistry and Physics Faculty Proceedings, Presentations, Speeches, Lectures (2011)
The individualizing properties possessed by human odor have been explored for its use as a biometric tool. Every individual emanates a distinct odor due to the secretions expelled from an assortment of glands throughout the ...
Assessment of human scent volatiles for the discrimination of individuals Chemistry and Physics Faculty Proceedings, Presentations, Speeches, Lectures (2010)
Human scent, or the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) produced by an individual, has been recognized as a biometric measurement because of the distinct variations in both the presence and abundance of these VOCs between individuals. ...
