Chemical Information
FooDB Namealpha-Terpinyl acetate
Description(±)-alpha-terpinyl acetate, also known as P-menth-1-en-8-yl acetate or (±)-α-terpinyl acetic acid, is a member of the class of compounds known as menthane monoterpenoids. Menthane monoterpenoids are monoterpenoids with a structure based on the o-, m-, or p-menthane backbone. P-menthane consists of the cyclohexane ring with a methyl group and a (2-methyl)-propyl group at the 1 and 4 ring position, respectively. The o- and m- menthanes are much rarer, and presumably arise by alkyl migration of p-menthanes. Thus, (±)-alpha-terpinyl acetate is considered to be an isoprenoid lipid molecule (±)-alpha-terpinyl acetate is practically insoluble (in water) and an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). (±)-alpha-terpinyl acetate is a bergamot, citrus, and herbal tasting compound and can be found in a number of food items such as hyssop, rosemary, sweet bay, and roselle, which makes (±)-alpha-terpinyl acetate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products (±)-alpha-terpinyl acetate can be found primarily in saliva.
