Chemical Information
FooDB NamePatchouli alcohol
DescriptionPatchouli alcohol is a member of the class of compounds known as tertiary alcohols. Tertiary alcohols are compounds in which a hydroxy group, -OH, is attached to a saturated carbon atom R3COH (R not H ). Patchouli alcohol is practically insoluble (in water) and an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Patchouli alcohol is a camphor, earthy, and patchouli tasting compound found in ginger, which makes patchouli alcohol a potential biomarker for the consumption of this food product. Patchoulol or patchouli alcohol (C15H26O) is a sesquiterpene alcohol found in patchouli. Patchouli oil is an important material in perfumery. The (−)-optical isomer is one of the organic compounds responsible for the typical patchouli scent. Patchoulol is also used in the synthesis of the chemotherapy drug Taxol .
