Chemical Information
FooDB Name2-Octanol
Description2-octanol, also known as 2-octanol, (S)-isomer or 1-methyl-1-heptanol, is a member of the class of compounds known as fatty alcohols. Fatty alcohols are aliphatic alcohols consisting of a chain of a least six carbon atoms. Thus, 2-octanol is considered to be a fatty alcohol lipid molecule. 2-octanol is slightly soluble (in water) and an extremely weak acidic compound (based on its pKa). 2-octanol is an earthy, fat, and fresh tasting compound found in common buckwheat, corn, and ginger, which makes 2-octanol a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products. 2-octanol is used such as or as a raw material in various applications: flavors and fragrances, paints and coatings, inks, adhesives, home care, lubricants and fuels. 2-Octanol can be a biobased alternative of 2-ethylhexanol and its derivates in numerous applications .
