They discover more than 7 thousand chemical formulas in beer | Digital Trends Spanish

Although beer is one of the most consumed and popular beverages in the world, scientists are still discovering chemical compounds that contribute to the flavor and aroma that characterize its different versions. Now, a group of German scientists has analyzed more than 400 commercial beers from 40 countries, discovering at least 7,700 different chemical formulas and tens of thousands of unique molecules. How they did it? To find this large number of chemical formulas, the researchers used a new method that allows a sample to be analyzed in just ten minutes. "Beer is an example of enormous chemical complexity," says co-author Philippe Schmitt-Kopplin of the Technical University of Munich and the Helmholtz Center in Munich. “And thanks to recent improvements in analytical chemistry, potent...
