Chemical Information
FooDB Name3-Methyl-1-pentanol
Description(±)-3-methyl-1-pentanol, also known as 3-ethylbutanol or 3-methyl-(.+/-.)-1-pentanol, is a member of the class of compounds known as primary alcohols. Primary alcohols are compounds comprising the primary alcohol functional group, with the general structure RCOH (R=alkyl, aryl). Thus, (±)-3-methyl-1-pentanol is considered to be a fatty alcohol lipid molecule (±)-3-methyl-1-pentanol is soluble (in water) and an extremely weak acidic compound (based on its pKa). (±)-3-methyl-1-pentanol can be found primarily in feces. Within the cell, (±)-3-methyl-1-pentanol is primarily located in the cytoplasm. It can also be found in the extracellular space.
