Chemical Information
FooDB NameUndecanal
DescriptionUndecanal, also known as undecyl aldehyde, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as medium-chain aldehydes. These are aldehydes with a chain length containing between 6 and 12 carbon atoms. Thus, undecanal is considered to be a fatty aldehyde lipid molecule. Undecanal is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble in water, and relatively neutral. Undecanal is a sweet, aldehydic, citrus-tasting compound. It is a colourless, oily liquid frequently used in perfumes. It is produced commercially by hydroformylation of decene. Undecanal is found in a number of food products including corianders and carrots, celery stalks, wild celeries, evergreen blackberries, corns, and sweet basils. This could make undecanal a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Undecanal is also found in many essential oils including citrus orange essential oil and grapefruit essential oil.. Undecanal is also a male sex pheromone used by the greater wax moth, Galleria mellonella (PMID: 24692052).
