Abstract The aims of the current study were to develop an enantioselective multi-dimensional gas chromatography (GC x GC) method for the examination of strawberry volatiles and to use this method to make comparisons between the volatile profiles of different cultivars and between fresh picked and post-harvest berries of the same cultivar. Strawberry volatiles were sampled using solid-phase microextraction (SPME), and the repeatability and reproducibility of this method was examined. Semi-quantitative analysis of the volatiles was conducted using the relatively new technique of comprehensive multi-dimensional gas chromatography, using enantioselective (chiral) columns for the differentiation of analyte enantiomers. Chiral GC x GC facilitated the detection of key enantiomers in strawberry flavour. The (-)-enantiomer of 2,5-dimethyl-4-hydroxy-(2H)-furan-3-one (DMHF) and the S-enantiomer of linalool were tentatively identified as the predominant forms in both the cultivars Selva and Adina. The compounds benzaldehyde and methyl hexanoate were shown to decrease in post-harvest berries, whilst DMHF and nerolidol increased upon storage.
