This program was organized to help promising young researchers from different countries to improve their practical skills and broaden their perspectives in volatile compounds and essential oil isolation and structure determination with respect to some novel aspects like metabolomics in biogenic volatile organic compounds and biomedical studies. Participants are expected to bring the acquired knowledge and skills back to their home countries and

Some topics in the suggested program have listed below:

1)      Plant volatile and aromatic compounds : diversity, structures, chemical structures and some biological activities

2)      Basic  and some specific approaches to isolation of volatiles , hydrola and aromatic waters: Hydro distillation , steam distillation, SDE, SFE, Solvent extractions,  head-space and so on with theory and practice

3)      Quantitative and qualitative analysis of essential oils, volatile and aromatic compounds : Physical properties(Optical rotation, Specific gravity ,...) ,quantitative analysis by GC-FID, determination of some retention  time indices specially Kovat’s Index, GC-MS theory and practice including of introduction of mass spectrometry of aromatic compounds , determination of chemical structure of volatiles by GC and GC-MS

4)      Application of metabolomics to studies of biogenic volatile organic compounds

5)      GC & GC–MS metabolomics analysis: applicability for biomedical studies
