Metabolite Identification
Common Namedelta-Decalactone
Descriptiondelta-Decalactone, also known as 5-decanolide or δ-amylvalerolactone, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as delta valerolactones. These are cyclic organic compounds containing an oxan-2- one moiety. Thus, delta-decalactone is considered to be a fatty ester lipid molecule. delta-Decalactone is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral. delta-Decalactone is a sweet, apricot, and butter tasting compound. Outside of the human body, delta-Decalactone has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as coconuts, evergreen blackberries, bilberries, milk and milk products, and fats and oils. This could make delta-decalactone a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. A delta-lactone that is 5-valerolactone substituted by a pentyl group at position 6.
