Chemical Information
FooDB Name(trans)-3-methyloctanoic acid-gamma-lactone
DescriptionQuercuslactone a belongs to the class of organic compounds known as gamma butyrolactones. Gamma butyrolactones are compounds containing a gamma butyrolactone moiety, which consists of an aliphatic five-member ring with four carbon atoms, one oxygen atom, and bears a ketone group on the carbon adjacent to the oxygen atom. Quercuslactone a is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Quercuslactone a is a flower and lactone tasting compound. Quercuslactone a has been detected, but not quantified in, alcoholic beverages. This could make quercuslactone a a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
