Eucalyptus Trees as Sources of Medically Related Products: A Brief Overview
Eucalyptus species are grown for a range of goods all around the world. We recently discussed their overall significance for energy products as well as their potential as medicinal products, and we are now providing an update on their prospects for specific medically linked products. We also look at some of the most promising strategies for turning potential cellulosic leftovers into high-value commodities. Many items that are currently made with petrochemicals can be made with Eucalyptus biomass. Larvicides, repellants, antibacterial, antifungal, and anticancer agents, biofilm inhibitors, nanoparticles, carbon fibres and derived items (e.g., surgical implants), graphene-based uses, and numerous energy products are among the many applications for eucalyptus bioproducts, which are classified as naturally occurring, generated by biochemical processes, or the result of thermochemical processes.
