Metabolite Identification
Common NameHeptyl butanoate
DescriptionHeptyl butanoate, also known as fema 2549 or N-heptyl N-butyrate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty acid esters. These are carboxylic ester derivatives of a fatty acid. Heptyl butanoate is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
