Chemical Information
FooDB NameGlycerol tributanoate
DescriptionGlycerol tributanoate, also known as butyrin or glycerol tributyric acid, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as triacylglycerols. These are glycerides consisting of three fatty acid chains covalently bonded to a glycerol molecule through ester linkages. Glycerol tributanoate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa).
