Chemical Information
FooDB Name(-)-Menthone
DescriptionOccurs with menthol in many essential oils including peppermint and geranium oils. It is used in flavour compositions L-Menthone is the most abundant in nature of the four possible stereoisomers. Menthone is used in perfumery and cosmetics for its characteristic aromatic and minty odor. (-)-Menthone is found in many foods, some of which are ohelo berry, rocket salad, cauliflower, and common hazelnut.

Classification
DescriptionThis compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as menthane monoterpenoids. These 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.
