Summary Chapter Title: Volatile Organic Compound detection using Graphene: Determining the Fruit Ripeness 1 Introduction Fruits are commercially vital and nutritionally crucial food constituent. Forming an element of a balanced diet, fruits supply essential growth governing factors required for good health and play a critical role in human nutrition. Distributed widely in nature, their economic values are influenced by- comparatively short ripening period and short post-harvest life. The assessment and maintenance of the quality of fruits and vegetables are very difficult task. The timely detection of fruit ripeness is very important as it is related to the profitability and also competitiveness of the producers as well as processors. During harvesting and handling it is common that fruits are subject to damage because it is not possible always to
