Accelerate Your Analyses with a New, Comprehensive GC-MS Spectral Database Collection


Wiley's Food, Flavors, Fragrances, and Related Compounds GC-MS Library is specifically designed to provide the compound coverage you need across multiple applications in food manufacturing, product development, and related areas.

This comprehensive database of more than 13,000 GC-MS spectra includes essential oils, lipids, volatile organic compounds, terpenes, herbicides, insecticides, and many other compound classes of importance for food, flavor, fragrance, and cannabis GC-MS analyses.

  • Covers a broad range of compounds and applications
  • Along with spectra, records contain physical properties and structures when available
  • Data is carefully reviewed by Wiley experts to ensure it meets quality standards


This GC-MS database is an invaluable resource for analytical chemists in detection, identification, analysis, quality control (QC), and quality assurance (QA) in food and food-related industries.
