Molecular model of 2-methylpropyl propanoate, or isobutyl propionate, an ester compound that smells like rum. Although a natural flavour may contain nearly a hundred different compounds, single esters approximate a natural odour and are used in the food industry for artificial flavours and fragrances. Atoms are colour-coded: carbon (grey), oxygen (red) and hydrogen (white).
