DescriptionOctanal, also known as 1-caprylaldehyde or aldehyde C-8, 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. Thus, octanal is considered to be a fatty aldehyde lipid molecule. Octanal is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral. Octanal exists in all eukaryotes, ranging from yeast to humans.
