Cyclohexadecanone is an organic compound with the formula (CH2)15CO. It is a cyclic ketone, which is a minor component of the musk scent of the civet. Several related derivatives are also important in the fragrance industry, especially those with alkene group in the backbone such as civetone, muscone, and velvione (5-cyclohexadecenone). It is synthesized from cyclododecanone.[1]
