What is Phenethyl Acetate?

Phenethyl Acetate, also known as phenethyl acetate, is an organic compound that belongs to the ester family. Its chemical formula is C12H14O2, which is formed by connecting a phenylethanol group (C6H5CH2CH2OH) and an acetate group (CH3COO-) through an esterification reaction. Phenethyl acetate has a pleasant floral smell and is therefore widely used in perfumery and aromatherapy as a flavoring agent to simulate the aroma of natural flowers, such as roses and violets. In addition, it can be used as a food additive to enhance the flavor and aroma of products such as honey, cream, toffee and certain fruits such as apricots and strawberries. In the chemical and industrial fields, phenethyl acetate can be used as a solvent or intermediate to participate in other chemical synthesis processes.
