Metabolite Identification
Common NameBenzyl benzoate
DescriptionBenzyl benzoate, also known as benylate or benylic acid, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as benzoic acid esters. These are ester derivatives of benzoic acid. Benzyl benzoate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Benzyl benzoate is a faint, sweet, and almond tasting compound. Outside of the human body, benzyl benzoate is found, on average, in the highest concentration within Ceylon cinnamon. Benzyl benzoate has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as fennels, garden tomato, annual wild rice, amaranths, and horseradish tree. This could make benzyl benzoate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Benzyl benzoate is one of the older preparations used to treat scabies. Scabies is a skin infection caused by the mite Sarcoptes scabiei. It is characterized by severe itching (particularly at night), red spots, and may lead to a secondary infection. Benzyl benzoate is lethal to this mite and is therefore useful in the treatment of scabies. It is also used to treat lice infestations of the head and body.
