Fourteen volatile components including eight allypyrocatechol analgos were isolated and identified from the essential oil and ether soluble fraction of PhilippinePiper betle leaves (Piperaceae). The major constituents of PhilippinePiper betle oil were chavibetol and chavibetol acetate. Capillary GC analysis of the oil showed chavibetol (53.1%), chavibetol acetate (15.5%), caryophyllene (3.79%), allypyroacatechol diacetate (0.71%), campene (0.48%), chavibetol methyl ether (=methyl eugenol, 0.48… 
Efficacy of chemically characterized Piper betle L. essential oil against fungal and aflatoxin contamination of some edible commodities and its antioxidant activity.
P. betle EO exhibited special merits possessing antifungal, aflatoxin suppressive and antioxidant characters which are desirable for an ideal preservative and its application as a plant based food additive in protection and enhancement of shelf life of edible commodities during storage and processing is strongly recommended in view of the toxicological implications by synthetic preservatives.
This review is focused on emphasizing the varied pharmacological properties of Piper betle Linn.
