Metabolite Identification
Common NameCinnamyl alcohol
DescriptionCinnamyl alcohol, also known as styrylcarbinol or zimtalcohol, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as cinnamyl alcohols. These are aromatic alcohols containing a 3-phenylprop-2-en-1-ol moiety. Cinnamyl alcohol is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Cinnamyl alcohol is a sweet, balsam, and bitter tasting compound. Outside of the human body, Cinnamyl alcohol is found, on average, in the highest concentration within ceylon cinnamons and star anises. Cinnamyl alcohol has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as papaya, new zealand spinachs, wax apples, wild celeries, and eggplants. This could make cinnamyl alcohol a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. A primary alcohol comprising an allyl core with a hydroxy substituent at the 1-position and a phenyl substituent at the 3-position (geometry of the C=C bond unspecified).
