Chemical Information
FooDB Name2-Hexanol
Description2-hexanol, also known as hexan-2-ol, is a member of the class of compounds known as secondary alcohols. Secondary alcohols are compounds containing a secondary alcohol functional group, with the general structure HOC(R)(R') (R,R'=alkyl, aryl). Thus, 2-hexanol is considered to be a fatty alcohol lipid molecule. 2-hexanol is soluble (in water) and an extremely weak acidic compound (based on its pKa). 2-hexanol is a chemical and winey tasting compound and can be found in a number of food items such as safflower, green bell pepper, pepper (c. frutescens), and red bell pepper, which makes 2-hexanol a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products. 2-hexanol can be found primarily in saliva. 2-hexanol exists in all eukaryotes, ranging from yeast to humans. 2-Hexanol (or hexan-2-ol) is a six carbon alcohol in which the OH group is located on the second carbon atom. Its chemical formula is C6H14O or C6H13OH. It is an isomer of the other hexanols. 2-Hexanol has a chiral center and can be resolved into two different enantiomers .
