3-Phenylpropionaldehyde is used as a flavoring agent. It is also used in the preparation of cinnamaldehyde, 2-chloro hydrocinnamaldehyde by alfa chlorination and mixture of homopropargyl alcohols. It serves as a precursor for the synthesis of mixture of syn- and anti-beta-hydroxyallylsilanes by hydroboration of allenylsilane. It is also involved in the catalytic asymmetric cyanosilylation to prepare (2S)-2-hydroxy-4-phenylbutanenitrile. Further, it undergoes Henry reaction to form nitroaldols by reacting with nitromethane.
