isobutyl alcohol

[¦ī·sō′byüd·əl ′al·kə‚hȯl]
(organic chemistry)
(CH3)2CHCH2OH A colorless liquid that is a by-product of the synthetic production of methanol, boils at 107°C; soluble in water, ether, and alcohol; used as a solvent in paints and lacquers, in organic synthesis, and in resin coatings. Also known as isobutanol; isopropylcarbinol; 2-methyl-l-propanol.

There was statistically significant difference between the concentrations of alcohols after extraction, including 1-propanol, isobutyl alcohol, Isoamyl alcohol, 3-hexen-1-ol, 2,3-butanediol, alphaterpineol, phenylethyl alcohol, and 3-ethyl-1-butanol, which could be related to the higher availability of relative amino acids in pulpy juice [24].

A total of 19 VOCs were initially selected as the reference analytes for this study: (1) five aldehydes: acetaldehyde (AA), propionaldehyde (PA),butyraldehyde (BA), isovaleraldehyde (IA), and n-valeraldehyde (VA); (2) six aromatics: benzene (B), toluene (T), styrene (S), p-xylene (p-X), m-xylene (m-X), and o-xylene (o-X); (3) four carboxylic: propionic acid (PPA), butyric acid (BTA), isovaleric acid (IVA), and n-valeric acid (VLA); (4) two ketones: methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), and methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK); (5) one alcohol: isobutyl alcohol (i-BuAl); and (6) one ester: n-butyl acetate (BuAc) (Table 2).
