Chavicol-O-glucuronide is a metabolite of methyl chavicol and chavicol. Glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) readily attacks chavicol (a metabolite of methyl chavicol) on the 4 hydroxy position of the benzene ring producing chavicol-O-glucuronide. This action reduces the lipid solubility from chavicol's XLogP3 of 2.9 down to chavicol-O-glucuronide's XLogP3 of 1.08.
