Metabolite Identification
Common NamePalmitaldehyde
DescriptionPalmitaldehyde, also known as 1-hexadecanal, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty aldehydes. These are long chain aldehydes with a chain of at least 12 carbon atoms. Thus, palmitaldehyde is considered to be a fatty aldehyde lipid molecule. Palmitaldehyde is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
