3-Hexanone Usage And Synthesis
DescriptionMay be synthesized from organo-mercury compounds; by dehydrogenation of 3-hexanol in the presence of Ni-zinc oxide-phosphate catalyst; by hydrogenolysis of 2-ethylfuran; by passing (5-furylpropionic acid (or 2-furanpropionic acid) over 5% Pt-C catalyst to 250 to 300°C; by two patented processes.
Chemical Propertiescolourless liquid
Chemical Properties3-Hexanone has an ethereal, grape, wine-like odor
OccurrenceReported found in coffee and, as a component in the volatile by-product developed during the catalytic hydrogenation of soybean oil using Ni catalysts; in the scent of green vegetable Nezara viridula. Also reported found in lime peel oil, black currants, peach, pineapple, fried potato, Parmesan cheese, butter, milk, eggs, beef, fried pork, beer, rum, cocoa, coffee, filberts, passion fruit, plumcot, rose apple, mango, lemon balm, crab, Cape gooseberry and sweet grass oil.
Uses3-Hexanone was used in a study to determine Henry′s law coefficients by combination of the equilibrium partitioning in closed systems technique in combination with solid-phase microextraction. It was used as test species in a study for quantitative determination of volatile organic compounds by chemical ionization reaction mass spectrometry. It was used to study the inhibitory activity of some aromatic and aliphatic ketones against Clostridium Botulinum spores and cells.
Uses3-Hexanone can be used as an analytical standard for the determination of the analyte in foods, and alcoholic beverages by liquid chromatography (LC) based methods.
PreparationFrom organo-mercury compounds; by dehydrogenation of 3-hexanol in the presence of Ni-zinc oxide-phosphate catalyst; by hydrogenolysis of 2-ethylfuran; by passing β-furylpropionic acid (or 2-furanpropionic acid) over 5% Pt-C catalyst from 250 to 300°C; by two patented processes
DefinitionChEBI: 3-hexanone is a dialkyl ketone that is hexane in which the two methylene protons at position 3 have been replaced by an oxo group. It has a role as a human urinary metabolite, a human xenobiotic metabolite, an insect attractant, a plant metabolite and a bacterial xenobiotic metabolite. It derives from a hydride of a hexane.
Aroma threshold valuesDetection: 41 to 81 ppb
Taste threshold valuesTaste characteristics at 30 ppm: sweet, fruity and waxy with rum notes
