Talk:phenpropionate

I suspect this to be incorrect. Did you mean (as Google suggests) phenylproprionate? --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 00:17, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

I have been going through User:SemperBlotto/sandbox/p, which has words from various (possibly fallible) sources. I guessed the def here because I know about -ate and the acid seems to exist; you can also see a lot of references to nandrolone phenpropionate in Google Books. But I'm not a chemist. What made you think it was wrong, in particular? Equinox 00:24, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Mostly the fact that after a quick search, I can't find anything without nandrolene before it. But also because I've studied organic chemistry and it doesn't sound right. See phenyl, and note that phen does not exist. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 00:28, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
There are phenalene, phenadoxone, and phenazine (I actually thought there was a kind of phen- prefix used for fertilisers, but apparently I was thinking of something else). Don't know — might be best to RFV it. Equinox 00:31, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
I could be wrong. I'll RFV it anyway, just to be sure. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 00:33, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

For background, see Talk:phenpropionate. Does it exist independently of nandrolene?--Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 00:34, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Quasi-RFV-failed for now (made an {{only-in}} quasi-redirect). In rare cases, a term fails RFV because nobody tries to cite it... I'm happy to say such cases are rare, but this is one of them. - -sche (discuss) 09:39, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
Edit: I found two non-nandro citations:
    • 1991, Dictionary of Steroids: chemical data, structures, and bibliographies (R. A. Hill, Anthony Cooper, A. D. Roberts; ISBN 0412270609), page 705:
      20-(3-Phenylpropanoyl): [16915-80-3]. Oxogestone phenpropionate, []
    • 2000, Charles Yesalis, Anabolic steroids in sport and exercise (ISBN 0880117869), page 37
      [] and phenpropionate [] of nortestosterone.

So, entry restored. I'd pass it, but the discussion on the talk page suggests we're not sure of the definition. - -sche (discuss) 19:22, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

There's also "Decanoate phenpropionate". - -sche (discuss) 19:24, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
Passed. - -sche (discuss) 23:15, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
