MSDS External MSDS

Phenylacetic acid (abr. PAA and synonyms are: α-toluic acid, benzeneacetic acid, alpha tolylic acid, 2-phenylacetic acid) is an organic compound containing a phenyl functional group and an acetic acid functional group.

Because it is used in the illicit production of phenylacetone (used in the manufacture of meth/amphetamines), it is subject to controls in the United States.

Phenylacetic acid



Phenylacetic acid is used in some perfumes, possessing a honey-like odour in low concentrations, and is also used in penicillin G production. It is also employed to treat type II hyperammonemia to help reduce the amounts of ammonia in a patient's bloodstream by forming phenylacetyl-CoA which then reacts with nitrogen-rich glutamine to form phenylacetylglutamine. This compound is then secreted by the patient's body.

Phenylacetic acid is a white crystals with a disagreeable odor; boiling point 262 C; soluble in alcohol and ether. It serves as an ingredient in perfume to provide honey-like odor. It is found as a moiety in some alkaloids and plant hormones. It is formed as catabolite of phenylalanine. In toluic acid name system, phenylacetic acid is alpha-toluic acid which one of the hydrogen atoms in the methyl group has been substituted instead of the substitution in the benzene ring.

Substituted phenylacetic acid molecule at alpha position and phenylacetate esters can serve as a drug with a wide variety of effects including anticholinergic, muscarinic antagonist, antidote to cholinesterase inhibitors or toxins, cycloplegic and mydriatic. Phenylacetic acid is used to prepare a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug like diclofenac. It is used the manufacture of penicillin. Mandelic Acid, phenylglycollic acid, can be produced from phenylchloracetic acid.
