Chemical Information
FooDB NameBenzyl 2-methylbutanoate
DescriptionBenzyl 2-methylbutanoate is a member of the class of compounds known as benzyloxycarbonyls. Benzyloxycarbonyls are organic compounds containing a carbonyl group substituted with a benzyloxyl group. Benzyl 2-methylbutanoate is practically insoluble (in water) and an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Benzyl 2-methylbutanoate can be found in spearmint, which makes benzyl 2-methylbutanoate a potential biomarker for the consumption of this food product.
