Metabolite Identification
Common NameEthyl dodecanoate
DescriptionEthyl dodecanoate, also known as ethyl laurinate or laate ethyl ester, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty acid esters. These are carboxylic ester derivatives of a fatty acid. Ethyl dodecanoate is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
