Eugenol is miscible with alcohol, ether, chloroform, and volatile oil, soluble in glacial acetic acid and caustic alkali solution, and insoluble in water. It has antibacterial and antiviral effects; as an edible spice, it can also be made into unilateral essential oils of many flowers, can be used to prepare gypsophila-shaped spices, and can also be used to prepare strong-flavored dried fruits, etc.

Pharmacological Effects:

♔  Antibacterial: at the concentration of 1:8000~1:16000, it can inhibit pathogenic fungi; at the concentration of 1:2000~1:8000, it can inhibit Staphylococcus aureus, pneumonia and dysentery (Shiga low) , large intestine, deformation, tuberculosis and other bacilli have inhibitory effect.


♔  Stomach Strengthening: 5% emulsion can significantly increase gastric mucus secretion without increasing acidity.


♔  Intravenous injection in rabbits can produce anesthesia, lower blood pressure, respiratory depression and anticonvulsant effects, but subcutaneous injection in mice does not produce anesthesia. In vitro, muscle specimen experiments show that it has a strong antihistamine effect.


♔  Toxicity: The LD50 of rat oral administration is 1.93g/kg.

Applications of our Eugenol:

1. Antibacterial, lower blood pressure. Eugenol has strong bactericidal power, and also has local antiseptic effect.


2. It can be used in the formulation of perfume essence, various cosmetic essence and soap essence, and can also be used in the preparation of food essence. Eugenol has a strong dianthus musk smell, and is the basis for the blending of carnation-based flavors. It is used in the blending of cosmetics, soaps, food and other flavors.


3. Eugenol is an intermediate of some other spices, and its derivatives include isoeugenol, methyl eugenol, methyl isoeugenol, acetyl eugenol, acetyl eugenol, benzyl isoeugenol, etc. When eugenol is heated in potassium hydroxide, the double bond of the propylene group undergoes rearrangement and becomes an α-propenyl group conjugated with the benzene ring, thereby obtaining isoeugenol. After acetylation and mild oxidation, the α-propylene group is broken to obtain vanillin, which is the main component of an important artificial flavoring agent. Eugenol can also be used to manufacture isoniazid, a specific drug for the treatment of tuberculosis.


4. Eugenol is a body fragrance blended with carnation flower fragrance. It is widely used in fragrance types such as xiangwei, and can be used as a modifier and fixative, and is used to add fragrance to colored soaps. Can be used in many floral fragrances such as rose etc. It can also be used in spicy, woody, oriental, and scented types, and it can also be used in edible spicy, mint, nut, various fruity, jujube, and tobacco flavors.
