General description

3-Methyl-1-butanol is a potential fuel additive, which is a natural product of fungus and yeast fermentation.

Application

Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.
3-Methyl-1-butanol is used as a precursor for the synthesis of various chemicals, such as isoamyl acetate. It may be used as a reference standard for the analysis of 3-methyl-1-butanol content in honey samples using gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GC-MS).

Male rats (Rattus novergicus) infected with protozoan Toxoplasma gondii relinquish their innate aversion to the cat odours. This behavioural change is postulated to increase transmission of the parasite to its definitive felid hosts. Here, we show that the Toxoplasma gondii...

Molecular phylogenetics is increasingly highlighting the prevalence of cryptic species, where morphologically similar organisms have long independent evolutionary histories. When such cryptic species are known to be declining in numbers and are at risk of extinction due to a range...
