Definition of the noun Valerianate

What does Valerianate mean as a name of something?


  1. [obsolete, organic chemistry] valerate


Valerianate a.k.a. Valeric acid, or pentanoic acid, is a straight-chain alkyl carboxylic acid with the chemical formula C₅H₁₀O₂. Like other low-molecular-weight carboxylic acids, it has a very unpleasant odor. It is found naturally in the perennial flowering plant valerian, from which it gets its name. Its primary use is in the synthesis of its esters. Volatile esters of valeric acid tend to have pleasant odors and are used in perfumes and cosmetics. Ethyl valerate and pentyl valerate are used as food additives because of their fruity flavors.
