General description

Methyl eugenol is a phenyl methyl ether belonging to the class of alkylbenzenes. It is derived from eugenol and commonly identified as one of the important components of basil essential oil. It is widely used as an active pesticide ingredient and also employed as an insect parapheromone in insect traps, to attract certain species such as oriental fruit flies.

Application

Methyl eugenol may be used as an analytical reference standard for the quantification of the analyte in the following:        
  • Essential oil of Pimenta pseudocaryophyllus using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The purity of the extracted compound is then determined by gas chromatography coupled to flame ionization detector (GC/FID).       
  • Stem bark of Cinnamomum zeylanicum Blume using reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) with UV-visible detection.       
  • Rosa hybrida using gas-chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS) technique.

Packaging

Bottomless glass bottle. Contents are inside inserted fused cone.
