Electronic Nose Evolution for Food Adulteration: A Review
Avinash Kaushal,  Dr. Pallavi Gupta
Abstract: An electronic nose (e-nose) is a device that identifies the specific components of an odor and analyzes its chemical makeup to identify it. The invention of many new e-nose sensor types and arrays, based on different detection principles and mechanisms, is closely correlated with the expansion of new applications. An electronic nose consists of a mechanism for chemical detection, such as an array of electronic sensors, and a mechanism for pattern recognition, such as a neural network. Electronic noses have provided a plethora of benefits to a variety of commercial industries, including the agricultural, biomedical, cosmetics, environmental, food, manufacturing, military, pharmaceutical, regulatory, and various scientific research fields. The present paper illustrates the function of electronic nose, its application and investigates the effective use of e-nose in detecting gases that have some smell developed by the volatile organic compounds (VOC) like ethanol, acetone and benzene at different concentrations. The focused food products for adulteration study are milk and wine.
Keywords- E-Nose, sensors array, food adulteration, volatile organic compound (VOC), Machine olfaction, milk, wine.
