General description

Methyl 3-(methylthio)propionate is the major ester present in the flavour profile of juices made from fresh-cut pineapple fruits.

Application

Methyl 3-(methylthio)propionate was used to prepare 3-methiolpropionate(MMPA) to study the demethylation of Dimethylsulfoniopropionate and MMPA to 3-mercaptopropionate by aerobic marine bacterium. Methyl 3-(methylthio)propionate was used to prepare 3-(Methylthio)propionic acid to examine the methionine catabolism by Lactococci by 13C Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Gas Chromatography.
