Chemical Information
FooDB Name(+)-alpha-Carene
Description(+)-alpha-Carene, also known as car-3-ene or isodiprene, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as bicyclic monoterpenoids. These are monoterpenoids containing exactly 2 rings, which are fused to each other. Thus, (+)-alpha-carene is considered to be an isoprenoid lipid molecule (+)-alpha-Carene is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
