Metabolite Identification
Common Name3-Hexenoic acid
Description3-Hexenoic acid, also known as (3Z)-3-hexenoate or 6:1, N-3 cis, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as medium-chain fatty acids. These are fatty acids with an aliphatic tail that contains between 4 and 12 carbon atoms. 3-Hexenoic acid is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
