Chemical Information
FooDB Name2-Hexen-1-ol
Description2-Hexen-1-ol, also known as (e)-2-hexenol or trans-2-hexenol, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty alcohols. These are aliphatic alcohols consisting of a chain of a least six carbon atoms. Thus, 2-hexen-1-ol is considered to be a fatty alcohol lipid molecule. 2-Hexen-1-ol is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble in water, and relatively neutral. There are two known isomers of 2-Hexenol, namely cis- and trans-2-Hexenol. trans-2-Hexen-1-ol is found in cereals and cereal products. cis-2-Hexen-1-ol is a constituent of currants and hops. 2-Hexen-1-ol is found, on average, in the highest concentration within a few different foods, such as strawberries, thornless blackberries, and safflowers and in a lower concentration in bilberries, highbush blueberries, and kohlrabis. 2-Hexen-1-ol has also been detected, but not quantified, in several different foods, such as tea, broccoli, pulses, pomes, and evergreen blackberries.
