DescriptionGeraniol, also known as (Z)-geraniol or neryl alcohol, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as acyclic monoterpenoids. These are monoterpenes that do not contain a cycle. Thus, geraniol is considered to be an isoprenoid lipid molecule. Geraniol is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
