Metabolite Identification
Common Name(Z)-4-Heptenal
Description(Z)-4-Heptenal, also known as ( Z)-hept-4-enal or cis-4-hepten-1-al, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as medium-chain aldehydes. These are an aldehyde with a chain length containing between 6 and 12 carbon atoms (Z)-4-Heptenal is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa) (Z)-4-Heptenal is a biscuit, creamy, and dairy tasting compound. Outside of the human body, (Z)-4-heptenal has been detected, but not quantified in, milk and milk products. This could make (Z)-4-heptenal a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
