Description

L-Phenylalaninol acts as an antiulcer agent that reduces the secretion of gastric acid and prevents ulcer formation. It inhibits intestinal absorption of L-phenylalanine making it a prospective treatment for phenylketonuria. Further, it reacts with nitriles to form oxazolines, which finds application in palladium-catalyzed allylic substitution. In addition to this, it is also used in amidation for chiral resolution and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide modeling.

This Thermo Scientific Chemicals brand product was originally part of the Alfa Aesar product portfolio. Some documentation and label information may refer to the legacy brand. The original Alfa Aesar product / item code or SKU reference has not changed as a part of the brand transition to Thermo Scientific Chemicals.
