Chemical Information
FooDB Namealpha-Elemol
DescriptionAlpha-elemol, also known as α-elemol or elemol, (1r-(1alpha,3beta,4beta))-isomer, is a member of the class of compounds known as elemane sesquiterpenoids. Elemane sesquiterpenoids are sesquiterpenoids with a structure based on the elemane skeleton. Elemane is a monocyclic compound consisting of a cyclohexane ring substituted with a methyl group, an ethyl group, and two 1-methylethyl groups at the 1-, 1-, 2-, and 4-position, respectively. Alpha-elemol is practically insoluble (in water) and an extremely weak acidic compound (based on its pKa). Alpha-elemol is a sweet, green, and woody tasting compound and can be found in a number of food items such as hyssop, pepper (spice), wild celery, and coriander, which makes alpha-elemol a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products.
