3-(3,4,5-Trimethoxyphenyl)propionic acid

3-(3,4,5-Trimethoxyphenyl)propionic acid is a metabolite of elemicin found in rat urine along with its glycine conjugate.

The major metabolic reactions in rats of elemicin follow the cinnamoyl pathway or the epoxide-diol pathway. The cinnamoyl pathway gives 3-(3,4,5-Trimethoxyphenyl)propionic acid and its glycine conjugate as major metabolites. The epixide-diol pathway gives 3-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)propane-1,2-diol as a major metabolite.[1]
