Metabolite Identification
Common NameIsopropyl 2-methylpropanoate
DescriptionIsopropyl 2-methylpropanoate, also known as isobutyric acid isopropyl ester or 1-methylethyl 2-methylpropanoate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as carboxylic acid esters. These are carboxylic acid derivatives in which the carbon atom from the carbonyl group is attached to an alkyl or an aryl moiety through an oxygen atom (forming an ester group). Isopropyl 2-methylpropanoate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Isopropyl 2-methylpropanoate is a sweet, citrus, and fruity. Outside of the human body, isopropyl 2-methylpropanoate has been detected, but not quantified in, pineapples. This could make isopropyl 2-methylpropanoate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
