The Library Location

When The Society of Flavor Chemists started the Flavor Library in 1999, we were very pleased to make an agreement with the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia to house the Flavor Library at their facility.

The Monell Chemical Senses Center was established in 1968 and is the world’s first and foremost scientific center for multi-disciplinary research on the senses of taste, smell, and chemical irritation.

Persons interested in visiting the library that houses the combined collections of Monell and The Society Of Flavor Chemists can do so by contacting:
