Retifications was done by distillation using low vacuum pressure (5 and 15 mm Hg) and resulted in two fractions of clove leaf oil (fraction I and II). Observation was emphasized on the eugenol content and its quality. The eugenol content of fraction I was increased by 5-8% and those of fraction II was 30-31%. As for the purity of eugenol content, it was decreased in fraction I, and increased in the other.
