Chemical Information
FooDB Name7-Methyl-3-methylene-1,6-octadiene
Description7-Methyl-3-methylene-1,6-octadiene, also known as myrcene or 3-methylene-7-methyl-1, 6-octadiene, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as acyclic monoterpenoids. These are monoterpenes that do not contain a cycle. Thus, 7-methyl-3-methylene-1,6-octadiene is considered to be an isoprenoid lipid molecule. 7-Methyl-3-methylene-1,6-octadiene is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral. 7-Methyl-3-methylene-1,6-octadiene is a potentially toxic compound.
