Metabolite Identification
Common NameMethyl 3-phenylpropanoate
DescriptionMethyl 3-phenylpropanoate, also known as methyl dihydrocinnamate or dihydromethyl cinnamate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty acid esters. These are carboxylic ester derivatives of a fatty acid. Methyl 3-phenylpropanoate is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
