Metabolite Identification
Common NameEthyl benzoate
DescriptionEthyl benzoate, also known as benzoic ether or fema 2422, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as benzoic acid esters. These are ester derivatives of benzoic acid. As with many volatile esters, ethyl benzoate has a pleasant odor. Ethyl benzoate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Ethyl benzoate is a sweet, anise, and balsam tasting compound. Outside of the human body, Ethyl benzoate has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as black elderberries, pomes, alcoholic beverages, allspices, and blackcurrants. This could make ethyl benzoate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Found in various fruits, e.g. apple, banana, sweet cherryand is also present in milk, butter, wines, black tea, bourbon vanilla and fruit brandies. Ethyl benzoate is a potentially toxic compound. ; Ethyl benzoate is the ester formed by the condensation of benzoic acid and ethanol. It is a component of some artificial fruit flavors. It is a colorless liquid that is almost insoluble in water, but miscible with most organic solvents.
