DescriptionMethyl 2-[(1R,2R)-3-oxo-2-[(2E)-pent-2-en-1-yl]cyclopentyl]acetate belongs to the class of organic compounds known as jasmonic acids. These are lipids containing or derived from a jasmonic acid, with a structure characterized by the presence of an alkene chain linked to a 2-(3-oxocyclopentyl)acetic acid moiety. Methyl jasmonate is found in Arabidopsis thaliana, Artemisia absinthium , Artemisia tridentata, Camellia japonica , Camellia sasanqua , Camellia sinensis , Chlorella sp., Citrus limon , Eschscholzia californica , Ficus superba, Jasminum grandiflorum , Malva sylvestris and Rauvolfia canescens. It was first documented in 2008 (PMID: 17984079). Based on a literature review very few articles have been published on methyl 2-[(1R,2R)-3-oxo-2-[(2E)-pent-2-en-1-yl]cyclopentyl]acetate (PMID: 34378779) (PMID: 34371628) (PMID: 34366598) (PMID: 34363225).
