Methyl anthranilate (methyl 2-aminobenzoate, C8H9NO2) has Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) number of 134-20-3. It is also known as carbomethoxyaniline, MA, Meradimate and anthranilic acid methyl ester. The chemical belongs to organic compound classes such as benzoic acid esters. It is an ester derivative of benzoic acid. It is primarily employed as flavoring agent due to its grapy smell. It is also used in cosmetics, soaps, alcohols, fatty acids, and paraffins as an antioxidant agent. Methyl anthranilate is used as an agrochemical for protective coating of picked fruits and vegetables. Industrial applications of methyl anthranilate include magnesium metal corrosion resistor for jet engine lubricants and intermediate for synthesize of ortho-substituted aromatic and trans-esterification. Methyl anthranilate is found naturally in materials such as essential oils including bergamot ; orange peel, lemon peel, jasmine, Concord grape, strawberry, star fruit, wines, cocoa, black tea, and rice bran. However the commercially available methyl anthranilate is artificially synthesized. It is formulated by two methods: esterification of anthranilic acid with methanol or by reaction of isatoic anhydride with methanol.

Methyl anthranilate is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for food applications. It has been classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) by FEMA (Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association).
