Applications

L-Phenylalanine is an aromatic organic compound containing amine and acid as functional groups. It is an essential amino acid and its structure can be considered as the derivative of 3-phenylpropionic acid, in which one hydrogen atom present at C-2 position is substituted with amino group. It is a chiral compound and consists of two optical isomers. It is also known as 2-amino-3-phenylpropanoic acid, beta-phenylalanine, L-alfa-amino-beta-phenylpropionic acid, H-Phe-OH and (S)-2-amino-3-phenylpropionic acid.

Notes

Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
