DescriptionSulcatone, also known as methylheptenone or fema 2707, 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. Thus, sulcatone is considered to be an oxygenated hydrocarbon lipid molecule. Sulcatone is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral. Sulcatone exists in all eukaryotes, ranging from yeast to humans.
