Investigations of a Possible Chemical Effect of Salvadora persica Chewing Sticks
Chemical composition of S. persica roots essential oil and the amount of benzyl isothiocyanate, benzyl cyanide, and benzaldehyde in Miswak brushes.
Amount of compounds in Miswak brushes (mg/g dry wt)
0.190 ± 0.
Miswak-0 stands for baseline piece, that is, the amount of compounds present originally in the Miswak pieces. Miswak-1 stands for amount of compounds found in miswak brushes after one-time use; similarly Miswak-2 and Miswak-4 stand for amount of compounds in Miswak brushes after two- and four-time use. Different letters on values are indicating statistical difference () between values presented in the same column. Each value expressed in the table is a mean ± standard error ().
