The values for aliphatic alcohols obtained during experimentation ranged from 23 to 267 g per L, and the sum of aromatic alcohols
ranged from 2,437 to 11,844 g per L.
The majority of the hawkmoth-pollinated flowers emitted spicy aromatic alcohols
and esters, as scientists had predicted, but so did a few relatives that attract other pollinators.
, phenols and other aromatic compounds become slowly oxidized to give rise to different aromas and flavours.
