Chemical Information
FooDB Nametrans-1,2-epoxy-p-menth-8-ene
Description1,2-Epoxy-p-menth-8-ene, also known as 1,2-epoxylimonene or limonene 1,2-oxide, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as oxepanes. Oxepanes are compounds containing an oxepane ring, which is a seven-member saturated aliphatic heterocycle with one oxygen and six carbon atoms. 1,2-Epoxy-p-menth-8-ene is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). 1,2-Epoxy-p-menth-8-ene is a green tasting compound. 1,2-Epoxy-p-menth-8-ene has been detected, but not quantified in, a few different foods, such as celery stalks, lemons, and wild celeries. This could make 1,2-epoxy-p-menth-8-ene a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
