Modern flavors and fragrances are complex formulated products containing blends of aroma compounds with auxiliary materials, enabling desirable flavors or fragrances to be added to a huge range of products. The analytical chemistry of flavor and fragrance materials presents specific challenges to the analytical chemist, as most of the chemicals involved are highly volatile, present in very small amounts and in complex mixtures.
Grasse Institute of Perfumery has partnered with ERINI laboratory (European Research Institute on Natural Ingredients) to make you benefit from his training skills widely recognized for 15 years and the expertise of a leading laboratory for R & D and analysis in the field of fragrances and flavors.
We are proud to propose in Grasse, cradle of the modern perfumery, the first international training course about practical analysis of flavor and fragrance materials, led by two eminent experts in the field, Dr. Laure DZIUBA, PhD in Analytical Chemistry and more than 30 year of experience in the fragrance and flavor industry. For the level 1, the course will be mainly centered on Gaz Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry.
The course is designed for people having a good chemistry background (Bachelor, Master or a good practical experience). The working langage is English.
The number of participants is limited to 8.
