Metabolite Identification
Common NameEthyl isovalerate
DescriptionEthyl isovalerate, also known as ethyl isopentanoate or fema 2463, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty acid esters. These are carboxylic ester derivatives of a fatty acid. Ethyl isovalerate is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
