Chemical Information
FooDB Name1-Tetradecanol
DescriptionTetradecanol, also known as myristic alcohol or kalcohl 40, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as long-chain fatty alcohols. These are fatty alcohols that have an aliphatic tail of 13 to 21 carbon atoms. Thus, tetradecanol is considered to be a fatty alcohol lipid molecule. Tetradecanol is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
