Application Notes

Turmerone is a non-polar 1,4-dialkylaryl metabolite isolated as a constituent of essential oil from turmeric (Curcuma longa), a plant with a long association with both medicinal and culinary use. Turmerone has been ascribed antimicrobial, insecticidal, larvicidal activities and is reputed to have antivenom properties against snake bite. Turmerone also reported as having antitumor activity, to stimulate neural cell development and to act as an immunostimulant.
