Chemical Information
FooDB Name(±)-4-Methylnonanoic acid
Description4-Methylnonanoic acid, also known as 4-methylnonanoate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as medium-chain fatty acids. These are fatty acids with an aliphatic tail that contains between 4 and 12 carbon atoms. 4-Methylnonanoic acid is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
