Abstract: The contribution is interested in problems of volatile organic compounds emitted by wood shavings of different kinds of wood: pine (Pinus sylvestris) sapwood, (Pinus sylvestris) heartwood, English oak (Quercus robur), western red cedar (Thuja plicata) in the comparing of them. In the same time the olfactometric influence of individual components emitted by western red cedar and sapwood of pine was under review. In the work there is also described the relation among the results reported during the olfactometric measuring and the results reported during the measuring of volatile organic compounds especially emitted by cedar wood. The dependence of Limonene and α Pinene olfactory activity on the concentration of organic compounds emitted by tested samples of wood with strong olfactory activity.

Key words: olfactometry, VOC emissions, solid wood, perception, odour
