Antioxidant activity of eugenol and related monomeric and dimeric compounds.


Since the inhibitory effect of eugenol (a), which was isolated as an antioxidative component from plant, Caryopylli flos, on lipid peroxidation was less than that of alpha-tocopherol, we synthesized the eugenol-related compounds dieugenol (b), tetrahydrodieugenol (c), and dihydroeugenol (d), to find new strong antioxidants and assessed them for their… (More)
