Metabolite Identification
Common NameBenzamide
DescriptionBenzamide, also known as benzoate amide or PHC(=o)NH2, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as benzamides. These are organic compounds containing a carboxamido substituent attached to a benzene ring. Benzamide is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Benzamide is an intermediate in the Benzamide degradation via CoA ligation. Benzamide exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. Benzamide is a bitter tasting compound. Outside of the human body,. Benzamides are a class of chemical compounds derived from Benzamid, the carbonic acid amide of benzoic acid. In psychiatry some substituted benzamides are therapeutically used as neuroleptics and/or antipsychotics (wikipedia).
