This chapter provides a review of the most recent works in electronic
sensory system for characterization of Bioactive Compounds. Focus is placed on the
food applications and those compounds that are good for health. This chapter reviews
the main electronic sensory techniques, from electronic noses to sensors and biosensors
devices used for Bioactive Compound Characterization. The chapter demonstrates that
although Bioactive Compounds are difficult to detect with sensor systems due to their
high molecular weight and low volatility of the compounds and therefore few
references are found in the literature, it is important to stand out that these systems
could be a promising field for research and developing of industrial instruments applied
to real contexts.
