The human olfactory system is still regarded as the most important 'analytical instrument' for the assurance of odour quality in many industries, such as food and drinks. Until recently, there has been no major advance in the analytical methods employed to assess odour. Now, research on artificial olfaction in the late 1980s and early 1990s has led to significant advances in this field and to the launch of commercial instruments (called 'electronic noses') being used in a variety of industries (including food, water and brewing). An electronic nose comprises an array of chemical sensors, where each sensor has only partial specificity to a wide range of odorant molecules, coupled with a suitable pattern recognition system. This paper briefly reviews the development of artificial olfaction and discusses future trends in electronic nose technology.
