Paracoumaryl alcohol, also called p-coumaryl alcohol, 4-coumaryl alcohol, 4-hydroxycinnamyl alcohol, or 4-(3-hydroxy-1-propenyl)phenol, is a phytochemical, one of the monolignols. It is synthesized via the phenylpropanoid biochemical pathway. When polymerized, p-coumaryl alcohol forms lignin or lignans.
Research suggests derivates of p-coumaryl alcohol may serve as dietary antioxidants.
