Metabolite Identification
Common NameAcrylic acid
DescriptionAcrylic acid, also known as 2-propenoic acid or acrylate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as acrylic acids. These are organic compounds containing acrylic acid CH2=CHCO2H. Acrylic acid exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. Acrylic acid has been detected, but not quantified in, pineapples (Ananas comosus). This could make acrylic acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Acrylic acid is a secondary metabolite. Secondary metabolites are metabolically or physiologically non-essential metabolites that may serve a role as defense or signalling molecules. In some cases they are simply molecules that arise from the incomplete metabolism of other secondary metabolites. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on Acrylic acid.
