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

Sulfotransferase (SULT) readily attacks methoxyeugenol (a metabolite of elemicin) on the 4 hydroxy position of the benzene ring producing methoxyeugenol-O-sulfate. This action reduces the lipid solubility from methoxyeugenol's XLogP3-AA of 2.6 down to methoxyeugenol-O-sulfate's XLogP3 of 1.61.
