Ethyl cinnamate, C11H12O2Ethyl cinnamate (C11H12O2) is a pale yellow to colorless liquid that possesses a characteristic, pleasant aroma similar to cinnamon. It is commonly used in the fragrance industry due to its attractive scent. Additionally, it finds application as a flavoring agent in certain food products, imparting a spicy, cinnamon-like taste. In the realm of organic synthesis, ethyl cinnamate can serve as a precursor for various chemicals. Its pleasing scent and flavoring properties have also led to its use in some cosmetic products.
