Metabolite Identification
Common Name3-Methyl-3-buten-1-ol
Description3-Methyl-3-buten-1-ol, also known as methallylcarbinol or 3-isopentenyl alcohol, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as primary alcohols. Primary alcohols are compounds comprising the primary alcohol functional group, with the general structure RCOH (R=alkyl, aryl). Thus, 3-methyl-3-buten-1-ol is considered to be a fatty alcohol lipid molecule. A primary alcohol having the structure of isopentyl alcohol but with a double bond between C-3 and one of the C-4 atoms. 3-Methyl-3-buten-1-ol is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral. 3-Methyl-3-buten-1-ol is a sweet and fruity tasting compound. Outside of the human body, 3-Methyl-3-buten-1-ol has been detected, but not quantified in, herbs and spices and sweet cherries. This could make 3-methyl-3-buten-1-ol a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
