3-methyl butyric acid Usage And Synthesis


Description

Isovaleric acid has a characteristic disagreeable odor. It is extremely penetrating and persistent with a sour taste. May be synthesized by oxidation of isoamyl alcohol or isovaleric aldehyde.

Chemical Properties

Isovaleric acid has a characteristic disagreeable, rancid, cheese-like odor. It is extremely penetrating and persistent with a sour taste. May consist of one or a mixture of isomers or n-pentanoic acid and/or 2- or 3-methyl butanoic acid. Consumption: Annual: 1850.00 lb

Chemical Properties

clear colorless to slightly yellow liquid

Uses

Isovaleric acid is used extensively as a flavoring ingredient in nonalcoholic beverages and in foods such as ice cream, candy, baked goods, and cheese, as a fragrance ingredient in perfumes, and as a chemical intermediate in the manufacture of sedatives and other pharmaceutical products. It is also used as an extractant of mercaptans from petroleum hydrocarbons, a vinyl stabilizer, and as an intermediate in the manufacture of plasticizers and synthetic lubricants.

Uses

In flavors, perfumes, manufacture of sedatives.

Definition

ChEBI: A C5, branched-chain saturated fatty acid.

Preparation

By oxidation of isoamyl alcohol or isovaleric aldehyde

Aroma threshold values

Detection: 190 ppb to 2.8 ppm

General Description

Isovaleric acid is a colorless liquid with a penetrating odor. Isovaleric acid is slightly soluble in water. Isovaleric acid is corrosive to metals and to tissue.

Air & Water Reactions

Isovaleric acid is slightly soluble in water.

Hazard

Strong irritant to tissue.

Health Hazard

TOXIC; inhalation, ingestion or skin contact with material may cause severe injury or death. Contact with molten substance may cause severe burns to skin and eyes. Avoid any skin contact. Effects of contact or inhalation may be delayed. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may be corrosive and/or toxic and cause pollution.
