Applications

Phenyl acetate levels in urine are marker for the diagnosis of some forms of unipolar major depressive disorders. It undergoes Fries rearrangement to form a mixture of o- and p-hydroxyacetophenones which are useful intermediates in manufacture of pharmaceuticals. It is a metabolite of Phenylbutyrate (PB), useful in the treatment of neuroblastoma and lung cancer. An odorant found in strawberries, passion fruit and black tea.

Notes

Stable under recommended storage conditions. Incompatible with oxidizing agents.
