Metabolite Identification
Common NameEthyl 4-methylphenoxyacetate
DescriptionEthyl 4-methylphenoxyacetate, also known as ethyl (p-tolyloxy)acetate or fema 3157, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as phenoxyacetic acid derivatives. Phenoxyacetic acid derivatives are compounds containing an anisole where the methane group is linked to an acetic acid or a derivative. Ethyl 4-methylphenoxyacetate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Ethyl 4-methylphenoxyacetate is a cherry, fruity, and hay tasting compound. Outside of the human body,.
