Metabolite Identification
Common NamePentyl propanoate
DescriptionPentyl propanoate, also known as amyl propionate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as carboxylic acid esters. These are carboxylic acid derivatives in which the carbon atom from the carbonyl group is attached to an alkyl or an aryl moiety through an oxygen atom (forming an ester group). Pentyl propanoate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Pentyl propanoate is a sweet, apricot, and fruity tasting compound. Outside of the human body,. A propanoate ester of pentan-1-ol.
