Metabolite Identification
Common NameAcetyl tributyl citrate
DescriptionAcetyl tributyl citrate, also known as citroflex a or tributyl 2-acetylcitrate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as tetracarboxylic acids and derivatives. These are carboxylic acids containing exactly four carboxyl groups. Acetyl tributyl citrate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Acetyl tributyl citrate is a very faint, sweet, and herbal tasting compound. Outside of the human body,. Acetyl tributyl citrate is a potentially toxic compound. Acetyl tributyl citrate is a flavouring ingredient and plasticiser used in packaging films for food.
