Of the amount of VOCs detected, aldehyde accounted for 36 percent (hexanal > pentanal > octanal), terpene for 40 percent ([alpha]-pinene > [beta]-pinene > borneol), and alkane for 24 percent (heptane > heptadecane > octadecane)
Among the induced hydrocarbons in beef jerky by gamma rays, pentadecane (C15:0), 1tetradecene (C14:1), 8-heptadecene (C17:1), 1,7hexadecadiene (C16:2), heptadecane (C17:0) and 1hexadecene (C16:1) were confirmed present in all of the samples examined.
Other components (6-methyl-5-hepten-2-one, E-[beta]-ionone, pentadecanal, heptadecane, 6,10,14-trimethyl-2-pentadecanone, hexadecanoic acid), known as miscellaneous, formed 6.
