Geosmin MSDS

The odor of Geosmin is best described as the smell of the air after rain falls on dry soil. Geosmin is responsible for the muddy smell in many commercially important freshwater fish. Geosmin combines with 2-methylisoborneol (MIB).
Human’s can smell concentrations as low as 10 parts per trillion of Geosmin in water. The characteristic odor of soil was first investigated by Berthelot in 1891. In 1965 the structure of the responsible compound geosmin was determined by Gerber. It was not until 1981 that the pathways for the biosynthesis of these compounds determined.*

Feb 2015 – West Coast Port Disruption

ILWu_PMA_600pxThis news may not be new to some, but I am passing along the information just in case.

I apologize for the interruption if this does not pertain to you.

Excerpt:

Work has slowed down and ports have become congested amid a nine-month contract dispute between the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, which represents 20,000 workers, and the Pacific Maritime Association.

Ports may shut down if an agreement is not reached. And U.S. exports are already slowing.
