has been attributed to the presence of volatile substances in its leaves, such as citronellal, citronellol
, and geraniol, among others (Shasany et al., 2000).
From this perspective, the aim of this study is to evaluate the in vitro antibacterial activity of thymol, linalool, and citronellol
, on cariogenic microorganisms.
Chemical standards of [alpha]-pinene, linalool, [alpha]-humulene ([alpha]-caryophyllene), nerol, 2-phenylethyl alcohol (PEA), [beta]-caryophyllene, citronellol
, geraniol, methyl eugenol, and eugenol were supplied from Sigma Aldrich (USA) while NaCl was purchased from Merck (Germany).
Dodecanal, 2-decenal, citronellal, citronellyl acetate, [alpha]-terpinyl acetate, [alpha]-pinene, citral, perillaldehyde, decanal, linalool, and citronellol
were purchased from Sigma Aldrich (St.
(1) Red mouthwash: glycerin, ethanol, water, benzyl alcohol, chlorhexidine, chlorobutanol, citral, citronellol
, sodium docusate, eugenol, limonene, linalool, menthol, and E124.
In this regard, the oxidation of cyclohexanemethanol, 5-Hexen-1-ol, octan-1-ol, and citronellol
into their corresponding aldehydes occurs in slightly longer reaction times (Table 6, entries 23-26).

The subjects sniffed aqueous solutions of cinnamaldehyde, methyl cinnamate, citral, citronellol
, geraniol and phenyl ethyl alcohol (PEA) at low (1 ppm to 2.5 ppm) and mid-range concentrations (4 ppm to 100 ppm), in two separate sessions.
Cardamom has varied essential oils which include such as sabinene, pinene, myrcene, geraniol, linalool, 1, 8-cineole, limonene and citronellol
among others that offer a wide range of benefits for skin, hair and health.

and Vitamins, Bull Chem Soc Jpn, 52, 846 (1979).
The antinociceptive activity of several monoterpenes such as borneol (Almeida et al., 2013), linalool (Quintans-Junior et al., 2013) and citronellol
(Brito et al., 2012) have been described.
