Methyl phenylacetate Usage And Synthesis

Description Methyl phenylacetate belongs to an ester compound form between the methanol and phenylacetate. It chemical formula is C6H5CH2COOCH3. It is generally found in brandy, capsicum, honey, pepper, some wine, coca and coca products. It is mainly used as a flavouring agent, and is also supplemented into perfumes to enhance honey scents. It is also applied for the partition coefficient measurement experiments. It can also be used as the precursor for the manufacture of synthetic perfumes. In addition, as an acylating agent, it can participate in the enantioselective acylation reaction of beta-lactam intermediate catalyzed by the penicillin G amidase.
