Metabolite Identification
Common NameMyrcenol
DescriptionMyrcenol belongs to the class of organic compounds known as tertiary alcohols. Tertiary alcohols are compounds in which a hydroxy group, -OH, is attached to a saturated carbon atom R3COH (R not H ). Myrcenol is considered to be a practically insoluble (in water) and relatively neutral molecule. Within the cell, myrcenol is primarily located in the membrane (predicted from logP). Myrcenol is a citrus, floral, and fresh tasting compound that can be found in sweet basil. This makes myrcenol a potential biomarker for the consumption of this food product.
