Methoxyeugenol-O-glucuronide is a metabolite of methoxyeugenol and elemicin.

Glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) readily attacks methoxyeugenol (a metabolite of elemicin) on the 4 hydroxy position of the benzene ring producing methoxyeugenol-O-glucuronide. This action reduces the lipid solubility from methoxyeugenol's XLogP3-AA of 2.6 down to chavicol-O-glucuronide's XLogP3 of 1.02.
