The cis-dihydrodiol metabolite from methyl benzoate has been used as a synthetic precursor of carba-beta-L-galactopyranose, carba-beta-L-talopyranose and carba-alpha-L-talopyranose. The structures and absolute configurations of these carbasugars were determined by a combination of NMR spectroscopy, stereochemical correlation and X-ray crystallography.

Two benzenoid esters, methyl salicylate (MeSA) and methyl benzoate (MeBA), were detected from insect-damaged rice plants. By correlating metabolite production with gene expression analysis, five candidate genes encoding putative carboxyl methyltransferases were identified.
