Earlier you mentioned the problem that I am more concerned about is that the bacteria in the shoes produces the odors and if the bacteria continues to grow, then the odor will change. That is why cold storage is needed. The cold will slow down bacterial growth and also inhibit mold or fungal growth. All we can try to do is to preserve the samples and their odors unchanged for as long as possible. 40 degrees F is recommended for the storage of volatile organic gases. It's also low enough to inhibit bacterial growth which is an advantage since you need to keep the bacteria on your samples dormant.
What are all the factors that can cause chemical changes in the odor molecules so that the odor changes?
If I could please have a ranking system starting with the number one enemy or worst factor than can cause chemical changes in the odor molecules so that the biological odors change of the ladies used footwear. This will likely involve several factors. I'm thinking oxygen is the most harmful factor to my collection. I will need to know all of the factors that will change the biological odors of the ladies used footwear.
Since the odors I seek to preserve are biological in nature, I would be satisfied if the odors can remain unchanged for at least 6 months or longer.
Only Jesse Handel to answer please!
A librarian mentioned Chemistry is the branch of science that deals with fragrance. For my collection of ladies used footwear, which branches of Chemistry does this fall into?
This may involve different branches of Chemistry, from the materials the ladies footwear is made from, to the odors I seek to preserve are biological in nature, and other factors.
