Metabolite Identification
Common Name7-Hydroxy-3,7-dimethyloctanal
Description7-Hydroxy-3,7-dimethyloctanal, also known as 3,7-dimethyl-7-hydroxyoctan-1-al or 7-hydroxycitronellal, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as medium-chain aldehydes. These are an aldehyde with a chain length containing between 6 and 12 carbon atoms. 7-Hydroxy-3,7-dimethyloctanal is considered to be a practically insoluble (in water) and relatively neutral molecule. Within the cell, 7-hydroxy-3,7-dimethyloctanal is primarily located in the cytoplasm and membrane (predicted from logP). 7-Hydroxy-3,7-dimethyloctanal can be biosynthesized from citronellal.
