Metabolite Identification
Common NamePhenethyl salicylate
DescriptionPhenethyl salicylate, also known as aks-bbb/661 or fema 2868, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as o-hydroxybenzoic acid esters. These are benzoic acid esters where the benzene ring is ortho-substituted with a hydroxy group. Phenethyl salicylate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Phenethyl salicylate is a balsamic, carnation, and floral tasting compound. Phenethyl salicylate is used imitation fruit flavour.
