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.

Solubility
Miscible with alcohol and diethyl ether. Slightly miscible with water.
