The different components of the gas sample have different pass-through times or retention times through the column. For monitoring the stage of ripening, a measurement time of 1 h is also sufficient, as the transportation of the fruit takes 10–14 days. This can be partly compensated by choosing optimal length of the optical path. Attached on the top of the package is a Fresnel multi-lens, intended to divide the total IR radiation transmitted by the absorption cell into four and focus into the corresponding absorption zone of the thermopiles. This conversion remains a major industrial process (10M kg/y). Hence, ethylene should be measured with a resolution of 50 ppb or better. Figure 12b shows the chopped signal without pre-amplification. The emitter is mechanically modulated at 8 Hz. [18] By 2013, ethylene was produced by at least 117 companies in 32 countries. (Online version in colour. The μGC is only available as a prototype. We developed a filter spectrometer for ethylene monitoring in fruit applications. Moreover, this system needs no additional support of carrier gas, as it is designed to use ambient air. The μGC system will be further improved in the future. The system can be designed for multiple gas detection. Source: HITRAN [44]. [36]. Compared to other systems, the measuring devices based on photoacoustic spectroscopy provide the best sensitivity. Such a sensor is not a stand-alone sensor device, owing to high cross-selectivity and poor sensitivity. Data compilation copyright Its UV-vis spectrum is still used as a test of theoretical methods.[10]. Carbosieve SII, a very porous material based on carbon, is used as stationary phase, because it showed the best separation capabilities for ethylene and vaporized water. (Online version in colour. Knowing the specific retention time, every peak in the output signal can be assigned to a specific gas component. [20], Mothe et al. sensitivity, selectivity, long-term stability, facilitation of automated measurement and suitability for mobile application. An example is the system CompactGC by Axel Semrau. With a measurement time of about 1 h, the μGC device is by far the slowest measurement system. In the first step, the gas from the container is pumped through the μPC and bypasses the μ-column. In comparison, the system with the best sensitivity to ethylene is the photoacoustic sensor, however, with the disadvantage of high price and high sensitivity to both noise and vibrations. Different amounts of ethylene are produced by fruits and vegetables as they ripen (figure 1) [9]. The White cell was exposed to different concentrations of ethylene at 0, 25, 50, 25 and 0 ppm again with a duration of 30 min for each step. The second type of column is the packed column that is in comparison to the capillary column relatively short—systems with 50 cm were discussed in the literature—and instead of the surface of the walls being the stationary phase, particles are the stationary phase. Latest work showed that a cost-efficient and sensitive system will be available in the near future and will give biologists the opportunity to create a shelf life prediction model that will be more accurate than those published in the past [13]. )Download figureOpen in new tabDownload powerPoint, Figure 8. One of the key advantages of the μGC is its price that is estimated to be €2000 in a midscale range production. Figure 7. These past attempts were not suitable for ethylene measurement. In fruit storage applications, other gases appear and can disturb the optical measurement of ethylene. The ETH1010 comes with a permanganate filter, which provides clean air for automatic zero calibration. The size of the whole measurement system is 10×12×16.6 cm3. Shekarriz & Allen [30]. A detailed description of the processing of the thermopiles can be found in [47]; the optical characterization of the thermopiles was shown in [48]. )Download figureOpen in new tabDownload powerPoint, Figure 5. Gold nanoparticles strongly absorb (carbon) double bonds and catalyse the oxidation of ethylene with oxygen to CO2 and water [30]: Figure 4. [29]. the number of reflections, is dependent on the adjustment of the mirrors, but limited by the diameter of the active area of the source. Therefore, it is necessary to analyse the rise of ethylene in the pre-climacteric stage of fruit development, when the ambient concentration is below 1 ppm. ABSOGER.

Yet, available IR sources for this wavelength range are either expensive or have a comparably low intensity. First field tests on measuring ethylene from industrial sources in Houston, TX, USA were performed by De Gouw et al. [37]). It is designed as a multi-gas analyser using three columns. (a) Ethylene concentrations along the (apple) fruit supply chain, measured in situ in an open gas system with a portable ethylene unit and (b) example of sampling on the sorting belt [31]. The first column is a capillary column that is typically used. (b) Detector signal during measurement of different probes with 0, 25 and 50 ppm ethylene concentrations.Download figureOpen in new tabDownload powerPoint. (Online version in colour. [citation needed], An example of a niche use is as an anesthetic agent (in an 85% ethylene/15% oxygen ratio). Figure 8. A chemoresistive sensor device was described by Esser et al. First tests were performed for the communication between the computation unit of the so-called ‘Intelligent Container’ [42] and the sensor device. The gas molecules absorb IR radiation at a specific wavelength. As mentioned, there are two types of columns available. The ambient conditions in the supply chain for perishable goods like climacteric fruits are of great importance. from South Africa to Europe. Some products derived from this group are polyvinyl chloride, trichloroethylene, perchloroethylene, methyl chloroform, polyvinylidene chloride and copolymers, and ethyl bromide. The addition of chlorine entails "oxychlorination", i.e. All six atoms that comprise ethylene are coplanar. One attempt in this field is presented by Agarwal et al. It appears feasible to achieve measuring in the respective ppb ranges, and thus the development of shelf life models using ethylene as a parameter will be a potential option. Aside from its sensitivity, the key advantage of the ETH1010 in this context is the potential to detect 1-MCP in the second chamber. Climacteric fruit can hence be the first major source of ethylene in all compartments along the food chain from the ship hull, regional distribution centre, wholesale market, receiving area, storage and display shelf in the supermarket. The measurement cycle is as follows. By using a dual detector array instead of fourfold detector array, the available optical power of signal is distributed on a much smaller detector area, which results in a much better signal-to-noise ratio. Owing to the absorption, the gas in the measurement chamber is periodically heated according to the copping frequency. NDIR devices use a filter specific to the absorption wavelength of ethylene. Its size is 39×27×15 cm3. Typical ethylene efflux rate over time. (Online version in colour. Photoacoustic spectroscopy provides the highest sensitivity values to ethylene gas. Les Barthes, France. been selected on the basis of sound scientific judgment. A voltage between this working electrode and a counter electrode induces oxidization of the ethylene at the working electrode. The IR emitter is mounted in a TO8 housing. In this case, a simultaneous measurement of the most important gases for ripening and transportation of climacteric fruits can be done. Therefore, the absorption not only at 10.6 μm, but also at other wavelengths has to be determined, i.e. However, cross-sensitivities cannot be avoided and must be compensated by reference measurements especially for CO2, if ethylene concentrations below 10 ppm should be measured. In general, these sensors are optimized for ethylene detection but show high cross-selectivity to other gases and poor sensitivity.

Scanning electron micrographs of gold nanoparticles: (a) magnification ×20k; (b) ×100k. Schematic of a photoacoustic sensor: the test gas flows through two-buffer chambers (1) to the resonator section (2). Secondly, by knowing the ethylene concentration, a prediction of the remaining shelf life is possible. Shimanouchi, T., More reliable predictions of the quality could be enabled by measuring the ethylene concentration inside a container. The main demand during storage identified by the agro-food sector is ‘online’ monitoring of ethylene in the ppb range with low-cost devices in the storage chambers. Current developments were highlighted in the previous section in addition to the earlier overview by Cristescu [14]. [13], The hydroformylation (oxo reaction) of ethylene results in propionaldehyde, a precursor to propionic acid and n-propyl alcohol. Ethylene appears to have been discovered by Johann Joachim Becher, who obtained it by heating ethanol with sulfuric acid;[27] he mentioned the gas in his Physica Subterranea (1669). Output signal from the gas sensor (SnO2, solid line in millisiemens (mS)) and the humidity (dashed line in %) for (a) initial ethylene concentration of 400 ppb and (b) about 170 ppb. This can be partly compensated by choosing optimal length of the optical path. The number of required test gases can be reduced to one for the presented systems owing to inherent features of the measurement principle and built-in mechanism. Owing to the cross-selectivity to water an additional humidity sensor is applied for the possibility to certainly identify the water peak at the MOX sensor (figure 10). This might be possible in the future. Methods for normal phonon mode determination N.B.!
