Metabolite Identification
Common Name(±)-2-Heptanol
Description(±)-2-Heptanol belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty alcohols. These are aliphatic alcohols consisting of a chain of a least six carbon atoms. Thus, (±)-2-heptanol is considered to be a fatty alcohol lipid molecule (±)-2-Heptanol is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
