Similarly, why is Trimyristin insoluble in water? Trimyristin in insoluble in water because it has a long chain of C-H groups which takes this compound nonpolar. Instead we will be using dichloromethane because trimyristin is soluble in that liquid.

Also asked, what is Trimyristin used for?

Examples of allomones include natural insecticides, herbicides, and antibiotics. It is these secondary metabolites that are of interest to us as pharmaceutical (or medicinal) chemicals. Many have been found but a great many more await discovery.
