Chemical Information
FooDB Name(S)-2-Methyl-1-butanol
Description(S)-2-Methyl-1-butanol, also known as sec-butylcarbinol or 2-methyl butanol-1, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as primary alcohols. Primary alcohols are compounds comprising the primary alcohol functional group, with the general structure RCOH (R=alkyl, aryl). Thus, (S)-2-methyl-1-butanol is considered to be a fatty alcohol lipid molecule (S)-2-Methyl-1-butanol is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral (S)-2-Methyl-1-butanol exists in all eukaryotes, ranging from yeast to humans (S)-2-Methyl-1-butanol is a malt tasting compound (S)-2-Methyl-1-butanol is found, on average, in the highest concentration within milk (cow) (S)-2-Methyl-1-butanol has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as chinese mustards, black-eyed pea, hyacinth beans, dills, and soursops. This could make (S)-2-methyl-1-butanol a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
