Metabolite Identification
Common Namecis-3-Hexenyl pentanoate
Descriptioncis-3-Hexenyl pentanoate, also known as (e)-3-hexen-1-ol, pentanoate or (e)-hex-3-enyl valerate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty acid esters. These are carboxylic ester derivatives of a fatty acid. cis-3-Hexenyl pentanoate is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
