Chemical Information
FooDB NameMethyl propionate
DescriptionMethyl propionate belongs to the class of organic compounds known as methyl esters. These are organic compounds containing a carboxyl group that is esterified with a methyl group. They have the general structure RC(=O)OR', where R=H or organyl group and R'=methyl group. Methyl propionate is an apple, fresh, and fruity tasting compound. Methyl propionate has been detected, but not quantified in, blackberries (Rubus) and evergreen blackberries (Rubus laciniatus). This could make methyl propionate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on Methyl propionate.
