Ketones are very similar to aldehydes as they also feature an oxygen with a double bond; however, this functional group always occurs somewhere in the middle of a carbon chain rather than on the end. Ketones can be identified from their scientific name, which usually end with the suffix “-one.” Common ketones found in essential oils are carvone and menthone.
