Description

General description

trans-Anethole is a naturally occuring flavouring agent. It has insecticidal, larvicidal, and antimicrobial properties.

Application

It was used as standard in the determination of trans-anethole in Savia sclarea essential oil using HPLC and GC-MS method.

Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Naturally occurring phenylpropene derivative that is estrogenic at lower concentrations and cytotoxic at higher concentrations to cancer cell lines. The cytotoxicity is related to the metabolism of trans-anethole to 4-hydroxy-1-propenylbenzene.
