What is Alpha-Amylcinnamaldehyde?

Alpha-Amylcinnamaldehyde (α-acetylaminocinnamaldehyde) is an organic compound whose structure contains a cinnamaldehyde group connected to an α-amino group. Cinnamaldehyde is a spice ingredient extracted from cinnamon bark and has a distinctive cinnamon aroma; the introduction of α-amino groups changes the original properties of cinnamic aldehyde, making it a compound with a special aroma, which may be used in It has certain applications in the fields of chemistry, food additives, flavors and fragrances.

In terms of specific applications, this compound may be used as a food flavoring agent to give food a unique cinnamon and sweet flavor; in the chemical industry, α-acetylaminocinnamic aldehyde may also be used as an intermediate for the synthesis of other functional chemicals or biologically active substances.
