Chemical Information
FooDB NameNonane
DescriptionNonane, also known as N-nonane or CH3-[CH2]7-CH3, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as alkanes. These are acyclic branched or unbranched hydrocarbons having the general formula CnH2n+2 , and therefore consisting entirely of hydrogen atoms and saturated carbon atoms. Thus, nonane is considered to be a hydrocarbon lipid molecule. Nonane is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral. Nonane is an alkane and gasoline tasting compound. Nonane is found, on average, in the highest concentration within limes and common oregano. Nonane has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as cauliflowers, pepper (spice), corns, celeriacs, and sweet bay. This could make nonane a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
