Metabolite Identification
Common Name1-Octen-3-yl acetate
Description1-Octen-3-yl acetate, also known as 3-acetoxy octene or 1-pentylallyl acetate, 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). 1-Octen-3-yl acetate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). 1-Octen-3-yl acetate is a fresh, fruity, and green tasting compound. Outside of the human body, 1-Octen-3-yl acetate has been detected, but not quantified in, a few different foods, such as fruits, herbs and spices, and mushrooms. This could make 1-octen-3-yl acetate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. It exists as two enantiomers and can be obtained as a racemic mixture. 1-Octen-3-yl acetate is a chemical compound with molecular formula C10H18O2. It is an ester of acetic acid and oct-1-en-3-ol. It is a component of lavender oil.
