Antibacterial and antibiofilm activities of eugenol from essential oil of Syzygium aromaticum (L.) Merr. & L. M. Perry (clove) leaf against periodontal pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis

Zhang Y, Wang Y, Zhu X, Cao P, Wei S, Lu Y Microbial Pathogenesis, 2017 ABSTRACT: The antibacterial effect and mechanism of eugenol from Syzygium aromaticum (L.) Merr. & L. M. Perry (clove) leaf essential oil (CLEO) against oral anaerobe Porphyromonas gingivalis were investigated. The results showed that eugenol, with content of 90.84% in CLEO, exhibited antibacterial… Read more »

Antifungal activity of essential oils on two Venturia inaequalis strains with different sensitivities to tebuconazole

Muchembled J, Deweer C, Sahmer K, Halama P Environmental Science and Pollution Research, 2017 ABSTRACT: The antifungal activity of seven essential oils (eucalyptus, clove, mint, oregano, savory, tea tree, and thyme) was studied on Venturia inaequalis, the fungus responsible for apple scab. The composition of the essential oils was checked by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Each essential oil had its main compound…. Read more »
