Chemical Information
FooDB NameTetradecanal
DescriptionTetradecanal, also known as CH3(CH2)12cho or myristic aldehyde, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty aldehydes. These are long chain aldehydes with a chain of at least 12 carbon atoms. Thus, tetradecanal is considered to be a fatty aldehyde lipid molecule. Tetradecanal is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
