Real-Time Detection of Leaf Wounding in Living Sweet Basil (Ocimum basilicum), Using SIFT-MS

Plant species – even to the cultivar level – usually have distinctive natural aromas. When damaged, additional volatile compounds are generated through enzymatic activity. SIFT-MS readily detects and quantifies volatiles characteristic of both aroma and leaf wounding in real-time, which are of significance to the culinary and agricultural industries, respectively.
