Metabolite Identification
Common Name2-Propenyl cyclohexanebutanoate
Description2-propenyl cyclohexanebutanoate, also known as cyclohexanebutanoic acid, 2-propen-1-yl ester or allyl 4-cyclohexylbutyrate, is a member of the class of compounds known as fatty acid esters. Fatty acid esters are carboxylic ester derivatives of a fatty acid. Thus, 2-propenyl cyclohexanebutanoate is considered to be a fatty ester lipid molecule. 2-propenyl cyclohexanebutanoate is practically insoluble (in water) and an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). 2-propenyl cyclohexanebutanoate has a fatty, fruity, and pineapple taste.
