Metabolite Identification
Common Namealpha-Methyl-2-furanacrolein
Descriptionalpha-Methyl-2-furanacrolein, also known as furfurylidene-2-propanal or 2-furfurylidenepropionaldehyde, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as heteroaromatic compounds. Heteroaromatic compounds are compounds containing an aromatic ring where a carbon atom is linked to an hetero atom. alpha-Methyl-2-furanacrolein is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). alpha-Methyl-2-furanacrolein is a cinnamon, herbal, and spice tasting compound. Outside of the human body, alpha-methyl-2-furanacrolein has been detected, but not quantified in, fats and oils. This could make alpha-methyl-2-furanacrolein a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
