Metabolite Identification
Common NameMethyl cinnamate
DescriptionMethyl cinnamate is found in ceylan cinnamon. Methyl cinnamate occurs in essential oils e.g. from Ocimum and Alpinia species Also present in various fruits, e.g. guava, feijoa, strawberry. Methyl cinnamate is a flavouring agent.Methyl cinnamate is the methyl ester of cinnamic acid and is a white or transparent solid with a strong, aromatic odor. It is found naturally in a variety of plants, including in fruits, like strawberry, and some culinary spices, such as Sichuan pepper and some varieties of basil. Eucalyptus olida has the highest known concentrations of methyl cinnamate (98%) with a 2-6% fresh weight yield in the leaf and twigs.
