2-Methoxy-4-vinylphenol is an aromatic substance used as a flavoring agent.[1] It is one of the compounds responsible for the natural aroma of buckwheat.[2]

Some insects such as Rhynchophorus ferrugineus (Red palm weevil) use this substance for chemical signaling (pheromones).[3]

The aroma of pure substance was described as: apple, spicy, peanut, wine-like or clove and curry.
