Abstract: Photoluminescence with visible emission spectrum was observed and visualized at the surface of certain fruits. This photoluminescence is associated with vapors of natural organic volatiles (odorants) emitted from the fruit surface. The photoluminescence spectra of various fruits (apple, pear, kiwi, and strawberry) were measured in vivo using a number of fluorometric methods. Fruit aging was found to be accompanied by modification of the photoluminescence spectrum shape and a noticeable increase in the photoluminescence intensity. Laser photoluminescence microscopy in vapors of fruit extracts and artificial compounds was used to assess the contribution of various substances to natural odor emission of fruits. The results of this study show that fluorometry of odors is a promising method for studying fruits and other objects.
