Storage and controlled release of fragrances maintaining a constant ratio of volatile compounds

Abstract

Controlled fragrance release at the right time, in the right place, depending on the context remains a technological challenge in the areas of psychophysiology, biochemistry or entertainment industry. In this study, we demonstrate how bulk poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) templates may effectively uptake and keep volatile organic compounds of essential orange oil in the original form without significant shifting of the scent profile depending on the sampling approaches followed by the controllable and slow fragrance release maintaining constant ratio of volatile compounds in a template-thickness, temperature- and time- dependent manner. Thus, the increase of temperature up to 80 °C enhances intensity of the fragrance release almost in 13 times without a significant shift in the chemical profile at least within 6 consecutive “ON/OFF” cycles. We believe that the concept demonstrated here towards fragrance storage via bulk PDMS templates as a model case may have an impact on the use of scent in the future.
