Metabolite Identification
Common NameIsopropyl tetradecanoate
Description, also known as estergel or bisomel, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty acid esters. These are carboxylic ester derivatives of a fatty acid. Thus, is considered to be a fatty ester lipid molecule. exists as a liquid and is considered to be practically insoluble (in water) and relatively neutral. has been detected in multiple biofluids, such as saliva and urine. Within the cell, is primarily located in the membrane (predicted from logP) and cytoplasm. has a faint, cinnamon, and fatty taste.
