Chemical Information
FooDB Name3-Methylbutyl benzoate
Description3-Methylbutyl benzoate, also known as benzoic acid isoamyl ester or fema 2058, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as benzoic acid esters. These are ester derivatives of benzoic acid. 3-Methylbutyl benzoate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). 3-Methylbutyl benzoate is a sweet, balsamic, and green tasting compound. 3-Methylbutyl benzoate has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as alcoholic beverages, cocoa and cocoa products, fruits, and papaya. This could make 3-methylbutyl benzoate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
