[Description]

Naturally occurring in various types of fruits and other plants, phenylacetic acid is a fragrant phenolic used as a perfume agent and food additive.  Its pharmaceutical uses include the treatment of hyperammonemia for patients with deficiencies related to the urea cycle, and as a side chain precursor in the production of penicillin G. It also plays a role in the production of Camylofin, Bendazol, and Triafungin.
Because of its use in the production of phenylacetone (used to manufacture substituted amphetamines, including methamphetamine), it is a controlled substance.
