Propenylbenzene epoxide

Propenylbenzene epoxide is the epoxide form of propenylbenzene. Also commonly known as (R,R)-Phenylpropylene oxide.

Effects on Epoxide Hydrolase

Propenylbenzene epoxide is an inhibitor of Epoxide Hydrolase. The (S,S) enantiomer is slightly more potent than the (R,R) enantiomer.[1]
