곰팡이 Geotrichum sp. 유래 실내 냄새원인물질 분석


In this study, we identified the odor active compounds among MVOCs (Microbial Volitile Organic Compounds) emitted from Geotrichum sp. which was previously identified as the main kinds of mold in indoor air. To sample the odor active compounds emitted from Geotrichum sp. while metabolizing, head space-solid phase microextraction (HS-SPME) method, which is well known for sampling odorants, was used. GC/Flame Ionization Detector/Olfactometry was used to identify main odor active compounds. GC/Atomic Emission Detector was used to identify if some compounds had atoms like oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur which are typically found from odorants. GC/Mass Spectrometry was used to identify the odorants. Finally, Retention Index (RI) of each system was verified. In this study, hydrogen sulfide, methanthiol, 1-butanol, carbon disulfide, dimethyl sulfide, dimethyl disulfide, S-methyl thiobutyrate, dimethyl trisulfide, geosmin were identified as MVOCs. Among them, identified main odor active compounds were dimethyl disulfie and dimethyl trisulfide which induce ordure smell and geosmin which induce moldy, earthy smell.
