Chemical Information
FooDB NameButyl lactate
DescriptionButyl lactate, also known as butyl lactic acid, 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). Butyl lactate is a creamy, fermented, and fruity tasting compound. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on Butyl lactate.
