Chemical Information
FooDB Name2-Methylbutyl acetate
Description2-Methylbutyl acetate belongs to the class of organic compounds known as carboxylic acid esters. These are carboxylic acid derivatives in which the carbon atom from the carbonyl group is attached to an alkyl or an aryl moiety through an oxygen atom (forming an ester group). 2-Methylbutyl acetate is a sweet, banana, and fruit tasting compound. 2-Methylbutyl acetate is found, on average, in the highest concentration within allspices (Pimenta dioica). 2-Methylbutyl acetate has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as apples (Malus pumila), sweet cherries (Prunus avium), cucumbers (Cucumis sativus), figs (Ficus carica), and pomes. This could make 2-methylbutyl acetate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Based on a literature review very few articles have been published on 2-Methylbutyl acetate.
