Metabolite Identification
Common NameDimethyl succinate
DescriptionDimethyl succinate, also known as DBE-4 or fema 2396, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty acid methyl esters. Fatty acid methyl esters are compounds containing a fatty acid that is esterified with a methyl group. They have the general structure RC(=O)OR', where R=fatty aliphatic tail or organyl group and R'=methyl group. Dimethyl succinate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa).
