Acetylpyrazine is used to form many polycyclic compounds, as useful structures in pharmaceuticals and perfumes. It is a component of the folates (vitamin B compounds) and of the isoalloxazine ring nucleus of flavins. Numerous pyrazine derivatives such as pyrazine polycyclic compounds, alkyl-, alicyclic-, and alkylaryl-substituted compounds, derivatives containing oxygenated functional groups and thio- functional groups in the side-chains are used in biological, drug, flavouring and perfumery industry. 2-Acetylpyrazine is used as a composition of flavouring especially in baked and chocolate properties. Odor Description : bread crust, nutty, popcorn, chocolate.
