Syzygium aromaticum is a tree in the family Myrtaceae, native to Indonesia with the aromatic flower buds known as cloves, and commonly used as a spice. The plant is commercially harvested in Indonesia, as well as in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Comoro Islands, Madagascar, Seychelles, and Tanzania. In the present chapter, we have reported the anticancer, antidiabetic antiinflammatory, antinociceptive, antibacterial, antifungal, antiprotozoal, antioxidant, and antithrombotic properties, as well as other biological activities and constituents of this plant. Due to its numerous pharmacological activities, S. aromaticum can be considered as a potential drug candidate for many ailments.
