Methyl phenylacetate is utilized for partition coefficient measurement experiments. It is mainly used in the flavor industry and in perfumes to impart honey scents. Further, it acts as a precursor to prepare synthetic perfumes. It acts as an acylating agent and involved in the enantioselective acylation of beta-lactam intermediate using penicillin G amidase.
