Stilbene - Phenylpropane - M-xylene - Xylene - O-cresol - Phenol - Benzenoid - Monocyclic benzene moiety - Organic oxygen compound - Hydrocarbon derivative - Organooxygen compound - Aromatic homomonocyclic compound
This compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as stilbenes. These are organic compounds containing a 1,2-diphenylethylene moiety. Stilbenes (C6-C2-C6 ) are derived from the common phenylpropene (C6-C3) skeleton building block. The introduction of one or more hydroxyl groups to a phenyl ring lead to stilbenoids.
