Chemical Information
FooDB Name1-Hexanol
Description1-Hexanol, also known as 1-hexyl alcohol or 1-hydroxyhexane, 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-Hexanol is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble in water, and relatively neutral. 1-Hexanol is an organic alcohol with a six-carbon chain and a chemical formula of CH3(CH2)5OH. This colorless liquid is poorly soluble in water, but miscible with ether and ethanol. Two additional straight chain isomers of 1-hexanol exist, 2-hexanol and 3-hexanol, both of which differ by the location of the hydroxyl group. Many isomeric alcohols have the formula C6H13OH. 1-hexanol is believed to be a component of the odour of freshly mown grass. It is used in the perfume industry and as a flavouring agent. 1-Hexanol is found in many plants, some of which are lemon, tea, yellow bell pepper, and hyssop. 1-Hexanol is a common constituent of essential oils (e.g. orange-peel oil).
