Abstract: Urushiol possesses catechol structure with C15 or C17 alkyl side chain. They consist of different alkyl phenols with the degree of unsaturation from 0 to 3. The potent antitumor, antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of urushiol have been greatly concerned. In this paper, the research progresses on separation method of different urushiol monomer are described. And the chemical structure modification of benzene ring and alkyl side chain urushiol to obtain stable urushiol derivatives are introduced. And then, the anti-tumor, antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral activities of urushiol monomers and their derivatives are discussed.

Key words: raw lacquer, urushiol, monomer separation, structural modification, biological activity
