Isosafrole is a phenylpropene, a type of aromatic organic chemical with a smell similar to anise or licorice. It is found in small amounts in various essential oils, but is most commonly obtained by isomerizing the plant oil safrole. It is a precursor for MDP2P which is converted into the psychoactive drug MDMA.
