Detection of volatile organic compounds in plant stress: a study on geraniol

Abstract:

Detection of plant volatile organic compounds as indicators of plant stress can improve crop yield and agricultural sustainability by enabling early-stage treatment of crop stress and by reducing the overall use of agricultural resources. In this work, the feasibility of detecting gaseous geraniol, a plant volatile, using cavity enhanced absorption spectroscopy (CEAS), a sensitive and non-destructive analytical technique, was assessed. For geraniol gas, a limit of detection of 147 ppb was ...
