Chemical Information
FooDB NameIsobutyl-2-methylbutyrate
DescriptionIsobutyl-2-methylbutyrate is a member of the class of compounds known as fatty acid esters. Fatty acid esters are carboxylic ester derivatives of a fatty acid. Thus, isobutyl-2-methylbutyrate is considered to be a fatty ester lipid molecule. Isobutyl-2-methylbutyrate is slightly soluble (in water) and an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Isobutyl-2-methylbutyrate can be found in roman camomile and spearmint, which makes isobutyl-2-methylbutyrate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products.
