Chemical Information
FooDB Name1-Heptanol
Description1-Heptanol, also known as heptan-1-ol or heptyl alcohol, 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. 1-Heptanol is a hydrophobic molecule, poorly miscible in water, but fairly miscible in organic solvents. Thus, 1-heptanol is considered to be a fatty alcohol lipid molecule. 1-Heptanol is a primary alcohol with a seven-carbon chain and the structural formula of CH3(CH2)6OH. It is a clear colorless liquid that is very slightly soluble in water, but miscible with ether and ethanol. 1-Heptanol is found in alcoholic beverages, in a few essential oils (Rosa rugosa), in plum and plum brandy, Bourbon vanilla, banana, morello cherry, orange, guava fruit, pineapple. 1-Heptanol has a pleasant smell and is used in cosmetics for its fragrance.
