Lab comments:
Methyl-2-phenylacetate by library match [subsequently confirmed by comparing to reference standard].

Phenylactone (P2P) may or may not be present. Methyl-2-phenylacetate produces a secondary GC/MS peak of P2P. The ratio detected of P2P to Methyl-2-phenylacetate is similar to a certified standard analysis.
Shiny white powder in baggie.
The GC/MS process sometimes causes substances in the original sample to be altered by the solvents, heat, and/or pressure involved in the analytical process. Sometimes those 'analytical artifacts' actually help confirm the identity of the original substance.

It's possible that some or all of the phenylacetone in this sample is an analytical artifact and it was not truly present in the original sample. We're not 100% sure in this case, so our final opinion for this sample is that phenylacetone could be present.
Sep 3 2020: The reference standard was received and sample was retested; Methyl-2-phenylacetate confirmed.

Aug 27 2020: A reference standard is available for Methyl-2-phenylacetate. To confirm its presence, this sample will be re-analyzed once a reference standard has been ordered and the lab receives it.
