General description

Geraniol undergoes oxidation with molecular oxygen in supercritical carbon dioxide catalyzed by chromium containing mesoporous molecular sieve to yield citral.

Application

Geraniol was used in field evaluation of synthetic herbivore-induced plant volatiles as attractants to beneficial insects. It was used to evaluate the tumor-suppressive potency of isoprenoids in vitro and in vivo.

Packaging

25, 100 g in glass bottle

When insects attack plants, insect-derived elicitors and mechanical damage induce the formation and emission of plant volatiles that have important ecological functions and flavor properties. These events have mainly been studied in model plants, rather than crop plants. Our study...

Sundry mevalonate-derived constituents (isoprenoids) of fruits, vegetables and cereal grains suppress the growth of tumors. This study estimated the concentrations of structurally diverse isoprenoids required to inhibit the increase in a population of murine B16(F10) melanoma cells during a 48-h...

The pharmacological activities of geraniol include anticancer and neuroprotective properties. However, its insolubility in water easily induces separation from aqueous formulations, causing administration difficulties. Here we propose new emulsified formulations of geraniol by using the amphiphilic polymer chitosan-oleate (CS-OA) as...

Plants can use volatiles for remote suppression of competitors. Mints produce essential oils, which are known to affect the growth of other plants. We used a comparative approach to identify allelopathic compounds from different Mints (genus Mentha, but also including...
