Metabolite Identification
Common Name(±)-Hydroxycitronellol
DescriptionHydroxycitronellol belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty alcohols. These are aliphatic alcohols consisting of a chain of a least six carbon atoms. Thus, hydroxycitronellol is considered to be a fatty alcohol lipid molecule. Hydroxycitronellol is slightly soluble (in water) and an extremely weak acidic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Hydroxycitronellol has been primarily detected in urine. Within the cell, hydroxycitronellol is primarily located in the cytoplasm.
