Chemical Information
FooDB NameMethyl phenyl sulfide
DescriptionMethyl phenyl sulfide, also known as (methylthio)benzene or thio-anisole, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as aryl thioethers. These are organosulfur compounds containing a thioether group that is substituted by an aryl group. Methyl phenyl sulfide is possibly neutral. Methyl phenyl sulfide is a solvent, spicy, and toluene tasting compound. Methyl phenyl sulfide has been detected, but not quantified in, a few different foods, such as cereals and cereal products, coffee and coffee products, and herbs and spices. This could make methyl phenyl sulfide a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
