Volatile compounds were extracted from Russula delica Fr. by headspace solid phase
microextraction (HS-SPME) with two types of fiber: polyacrylate (PA) and
divinylbenzene/carboxen/polydimethylsiloxane (DVB/CAR/PDMS) followed by analysis using gas
chromatography-mass spectrometer (GC-MS). It was found that there are eight volatile compounds:
benzaldehyde, 2-amylfuran, benzenemethanol, isoamyl-2-methyl butyrate, benzeneethanol, dihydro-
5-pentyl-2(3H)-furanone, ethyl dodecanoate and ethyl hexadecanoate. The major volatile compounds in R. delica Fr. are benzaldehyde, 2-amylfuran and benzenemethanol which give
pleasant odor.

Keywords: Russula delica Fr., volatile compound, gas chromatography-mass spectrometer
