Metabolite Identification
Common Name2-Methoxy-6-methylpyrazine
Description2-Methoxy-6-methylpyrazine, also known as 2-methyl-6-methoxypyrazine or pyrazine, 2-methyl-6-methoxy, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as methoxypyrazines. These are pyrazines containing a methoxyl group attached to the pyrazine ring. 2-Methoxy-6-methylpyrazine is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). 2-Methoxy-6-methylpyrazine is an almond, hazelnut, and peanut. Outside of the human body, 2-methoxy-6-methylpyrazine has been detected, but not quantified in, alcoholic beverages. This could make 2-methoxy-6-methylpyrazine a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
