Chemical Information
FooDB NameVanillic acid 4-sulfate
DescriptionVanillic acid 4-sulfate, also known as vanillate 4-sulphate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as m-methoxybenzoic acids and derivatives. These are benzoic acids in which the hydrogen atom at position 3 of the benzene ring is replaced by a methoxy group. Vanillic acid 4-sulfate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa).
