Metabolite Identification
Common Name(±)-3-Methyl-1-pentanol
Description(±)-3-Methyl-1-pentanol, also known as 3-ethylbutanol or 3-methyl-(.+/-.)-1-pentanol, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as primary alcohols. Primary alcohols are compounds comprising the primary alcohol functional group, with the general structure RCOH (R=alkyl, aryl). Thus, (±)-3-methyl-1-pentanol is considered to be a fatty alcohol lipid molecule (±)-3-Methyl-1-pentanol is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral (±)-3-Methyl-1-pentanol is a cocoa, cognac, and fruity tasting compound. Outside of the human body, (±)-3-Methyl-1-pentanol has been detected, but not quantified in, cornmints. This could make (±)-3-methyl-1-pentanol a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. A primary alcohol that is pentanol substituted by a methyl group at position 3.
