gamma-hexalactone
hexano-1,4-lactone
 
Notes:
4-hydroxy-Hexanoic acid gamma-lactone is occasionally found as a volatile component of human urine. 4-hydroxy-Hexanoic acid gamma-lactone has been found in the polar fraction of human blood. Biological fluids such as blood and urine have been shown to contain a large number of components, some of them volatiles (low boiling point) apparently present in all individuals, while others such are much more variable. In some cases differences up to an order of magnitude are observed. Although some of these changes may have dietary origins, others seem to be characteristic of the individual.
