Safranal appears in plants other than saffron (Crocus sativus).

From wikipedia;
Quote
Aspalathus linearis (Rooibos)
Camellia sinensis (Tea leaf)
Ficus carica (Fig leaf)
Lycium chinense (Wolfberry)
Cuminum cyminum (Cumin Seed)

You can also buy safranal from chemical supplier, such as Sigma Aldrich.

Safranal Chemical element

This is not an element, but a compound.

Nothing, this is the same molecule, just seen from other side and at different angle.

i just know few saffron compounds but saffron contains more than 150 compounds.golden yellow color is from Carotenoid and Picrocrocin has a bitter taste and is the chemical most responsible for the taste of saffron,Safranal is responsible for the aroma of saffron and also there is few percent humidity and fat.

anyone know other saffron compounds and that contains percent.
please highlighted effective compounds for appearance,taste and smell.
thanks

If you want to see the (purported) biological activity of these chemicals search Crocus sativus in the link above. As much as I love phytochemistry my knowledge in it is weak. Hope this helps.

The best source I know of is a material safety data sheet (MSDS) of the chemical. These can be found usually by googling the chemical name followed by MSDS. For example googling "Cineole MSDS" gave me http://www.sciencelab.com/msds.php?msdsId=9924005

Though this might not be easy for all of them as some chemicals have multiple names. If you need help with any specific ones I'll see if I can't find safety data for you.
