Metabolite Identification
Common Name2-Hexen-1-ol
Description2-Hexen-1-ol (CAS: 2305-21-7), also known as 2-hexenyl alcohol, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty alcohols. These are aliphatic alcohols consisting of a chain of a least six carbon atoms. The E-isomer has been isolated from tea and is a constituent of many fruits (e.g. apples, grapes). It is also present in asparagus (cooked or raw), cooked potato, cooked beef, beer, cognac, white wine, soybean and olives. The Z-isomer is found in cereals and cereal products, currants, and hops. The Z-isomer is also a food flavouring for baked goods and candies, producing a fresher note than the E-isomer.
