Applications
Isovaleraldehyde acts as a reagent in the preparation of active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) products. It serves as an internal standard for the determination of wine aroma carbonyl compounds with 5-8 carbon atoms. Further, it is utilized as a standard to evaluate the quality of olive oils by headspace solid-phase microextraction-gas chromatography using flame ionization detection and multivariate analysis. In addition to this, it is employed to enhance the taste and odor of the food.
