Metabolite Identification
Common NameEthyl p-anisate
DescriptionEthyl p-anisate, also known as fema 2420, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as p-methoxybenzoic acids and derivatives. These are benzoic acids in which the hydrogen atom at position 4 of the benzene ring is replaced by a methoxy group. Ethyl p-anisate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Ethyl p-anisate is an aniseed, balsam, and fruity tasting compound. Outside of the human body,.
