Eugenol (1-allyl-4-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzene) is the phenolic component of essential oil and the main constituent of Eugenia caryophyllata, Ocimmum gratissimum and several others medicinal plant. In view of its non-mutagenic and non-carcinogenic properties, eugenol is generally regarded as safe by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations. Eugenol has been recently shown to be effective for antimicrobials and treatment of different life threatening diseases including sepsis…

Bio-Based Aromatic Epoxy Monomers for Thermoset Materials

This review proposes to give an overview of the reported aromatic multifunctional epoxide building blocks synthesized from biomass or from molecules that could be obtained from transformed biomass, as well as the main natural sources of aromatic molecules.



Enhanced chemical and biological activities of a newly biosynthesized eugenol glycoconjugate, eugenol α-d-glucopyranoside

It is demonstrated that glucosylation is a promising method for modification of phenolic compound, and that α-EG is superior over its parent eugenol, in all of the tested aspects, including physicochemical properties, antioxidation activity, and antimicrobial and antitumor activities.

DPPH radical-scavenging effect of several phenylpropanoid compounds and their glycoside derivatives.

The DPPH radical-scavenging effects of eugenol, isoeugenol; and the glycoside derivatives of caffeic acid, ferulic acid, and isoferulic acid (SC(50)=8-28 microM) were similar to those of alpha-tocopherol, which was used as a positive control.

Eugenol-rich Fraction of Syzygium aromaticum (Clove) Reverses Biochemical and Histopathological Changes in Liver Cirrhosis and Inhibits Hepatic Cell Proliferation

Eugenol-rich fraction of clove is reported to inhibit hepatic cell proliferation and at the same time decrease oxidative stress, which might be the mechanism of protection against liver cirrhosis.

Eugenol a valuable compound for in vitro experimental research and worthwhile for further in vivo investigation

Eugenol and isoeugenol showed pronounced antibacterial properties and might be an interesting basic structure for drug design, but cytotoxicity of the compounds will limit their systemical use.

In vitro and in vivo activity of eugenol on human herpesvirus

Eugenol–acyclovir combinations synergistically inhibited herpesvirus replication in vitro and topical application of eugenol delayed the development of herpesv virus induced keratitis in the mouse model.
