General description

6-Phenylhexanoic acid is an arylalkanoic acid.


6-Phenylhexanoic acid was employed as a model compound to investigate the effects of chromophore orientation and molecular conformation on surface-enhanced Raman scattering based on metal nanostructures. It was also employed as a substrate to study the stoichiometry of side chain metabolism or complete mineralization of surrogate napthenic acids under methanogenic conditions.
