The lecture will cover the following aspects * The mechanism of odor detection by the human nose * The nature of substances responsible for odor * Formulation strategies to prevent irritating odors in adhesives * Methods of odor detection and evaluation.

Its place in the middle of the head, a strategic position, underlines also this important role.
