Metabolite Identification
Common Name1-Phenylethanol
Description1-Phenylethanol, also known as styrallyl alcohol or alpha, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as benzene and substituted derivatives. These are aromatic compounds containing one monocyclic ring system consisting of benzene. 1-Phenylethanol is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). An aromatic alcohol that is ethanol substituted by a phenyl group at position 1.
