Chemical Information
FooDB Name2-Hydroxy-4-methoxybenzoic acid
Description2-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzoic acid belongs to P-methoxybenzoic acids and derivatives class of compounds. Those are benzoic acids in which the hydrogen atom at position 4 of the benzene ring is replaced by a methoxy group. 2-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzoic acid is slightly soluble (in water) and a weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). 2-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzoic acid can be found in evening primrose, which makes 2-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzoic acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of this food product.
