Metabolite Identification
Common Name2-Phenylethyl propanoate
Description2-Phenylethyl propanoate, also known as benzylcarbinyl propionate or ecopco acu, 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. 2-Phenylethyl propanoate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). 2-Phenylethyl propanoate is a balsam, floral, and fruity tasting compound. Outside of the human body, 2-Phenylethyl propanoate has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as alcoholic beverages, ceylon cinnamons, fruits, milk and milk products, and nuts. This could make 2-phenylethyl propanoate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
