High impact information on heptan-2-one


Biological context of heptan-2-one

  • 2. The amount of label recovered in 14CO2 matched the amount of unlabelled 2-heptanone plus 4-heptanone recovered from urine, suggesting that both types of metabolite may have been derived form the major urinary metabolite, 2-ethylhexanoic acid, by decarboxylation following partial beta-oxidation [7].
