Analysis of volatile emissions as an aid in the diagnosis of dry rot

IRG/WP 92-2393

J Bjurman, J Kristensson

The dry rot fungus, Serpula lacrymans was grown in pure culture on malt extract and on sapwood of pine. The volatile compounds emitted from the cultures were determined by diffusion sampling on tubes filled with Tenax TA, thermal desorption and gas-chromatography-mass-spectrometry in order to find markers for attack of the fungus.
