Metabolite Identification
Common Name2-Nonanone
Description2-Nonanone is found in alcoholic beverages. 2-Nonanone is present in banana, ginger, Brazil nut, attar of rose, clove oil, coconut oil, passionflower, sorghum, asparagus, tomato, corn, wine, cheese, beer, blackcurrant buds, melon, and strawberry jam. 2-Nonanone is a flavor and fragrance agent. It is a clear slightly yellow liquid. Ketones, such as 2-Nonanone, are reactive with many acids and bases liberating heat and flammable gases (e.g., H2). The amount of heat may be sufficient to start a fire in the unreacted portion of the ketone. Ketones react with reducing agents such as hydrides, alkali metals, and nitrides to produce flammable gas (H2) and heat. Ketones are incompatible with isocyanates, aldehydes, cyanides, peroxides, and anhydrides. They react violently with aldehydes, HNO3, HNO3 + H2O2, and HClO4.

Chemical Taxonomy
DescriptionThis compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as ketones. These are organic compounds in which a carbonyl group is bonded to two carbon atoms R2C=O (neither R may be a hydrogen atom). Ketones that have one or more alpha-hydrogen atoms undergo keto-enol tautomerization, the tautomer being an enol.
