Metabolite Identification
Common NameBenzylamine
DescriptionBenzylamine is found in apple. Benzylamine is an alkaloid from Moringa oleifera (horseradish tree) Benzylamine is the chemical compound with the formula C6H5CH2NH2. It consists of a benzyl group, C6H5CH2, attached to an amine functional group. This colorless liquid is a common precursor in organic synthesis. Benzylamine has been shown to exhibit lipolytic, antibiotic and anti-mycotic functions (PMID 18457006 , 6445750 , 8340915 ).
