Phenolic Substances and Plant Disease

  • J. Friend
Part of the Recent Advances in Phytochemistry book series (RAPT, volume 12)


One of the major biological properties of phenolic compounds is their antimicrobial activity and it is often assumed that their main role in plants is to act as protective compounds against disease agents such as fungi, bacteria and viruses. Indeed their antifungal activity seems possibly to have been recognized as early as the time of writing of the Book of Leviticus when hyssop (Origanum majorana), which we now know to contain chavicol, was used to cleanse and purify a house after an attack of dry rot.
