Androstenol is an androstadienone derivative produced by humans, pigs, and other mammals. It is a pheromone molecule that has been found to affect social interactions such as mating and attraction. The chemical was identified from the urine of male boars in 1960 and has since been researched for its possible therapeutic and practical applications.
Androstenol is a prominent class of pheromone that is mostly produced in male animals’ testes. It possesses a variety of physical and chemical properties, synthesis and characterization methods, and biological qualities, all of which are covered in the following sections of this study. Existing research on androstenol has revealed its potential use in a variety of disciplines of study and industry, including its usage as an analytical standard, medicine, and the therapy of sexual dysfunction.
