Chemical Information
FooDB NameGuaiol
DescriptionGuaiol is a member of the class of compounds known as sesquiterpenoids. Sesquiterpenoids are terpenes with three consecutive isoprene units. Guaiol is practically insoluble (in water) and an extremely weak acidic compound (based on its pKa). Guaiol is a mild, balsamic, and guaiacwood tasting compound found in ginger, which makes guaiol a potential biomarker for the consumption of this food product. Guaiol or champacol is an organic compound, a sesquiterpenoid alcohol found in several plants, especially in the oil of guaiacum and cypress pine. It is a crystalline solid that melts at 92 °C. Guaiol is one of many terpenes found in Cannabis .
