Metabolite Identification
Common Name2'-Hydroxyacetophenone
Description2'-Hydroxyacetophenone, also known as 2-acetylphenol or 2-hydroxyacetylbenzene, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as alkyl-phenylketones. These are aromatic compounds containing a ketone substituted by one alkyl group, and a phenyl group. 2'-Hydroxyacetophenone is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). 2'-Hydroxyacetophenone is a sweet, hawthorne, and herbal tasting compound. Outside of the human body, 2'-hydroxyacetophenone has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as chinese cinnamons, tea, coffee and coffee products, alcoholic beverages, and garden tomato. This could make 2'-hydroxyacetophenone a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
