Chemical Information
FooDB Name3-Methylpentan-3-ol
Description3-methylpentan-3-ol is a member of the class of compounds known as tertiary alcohols. Tertiary alcohols are compounds in which a hydroxy group, -OH, is attached to a saturated carbon atom R3COH (R not H ). Thus, 3-methylpentan-3-ol is considered to be a fatty alcohol lipid molecule. 3-methylpentan-3-ol is soluble (in water) and an extremely weak acidic compound (based on its pKa). 3-methylpentan-3-ol is a fruity, green, and leafy tasting compound and can be found in a number of food items such as green bell pepper, pepper (c. annuum), orange bell pepper, and red bell pepper, which makes 3-methylpentan-3-ol a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products.
