Vanillin has been recognised to have various medicinal properties like antioxidant, antitumor, anticancer, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, neuroprotection, anti-quorum sensing activity, etc., and have extensive applications in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease; hypertension, upper respiratory tract infections and venereal diseases etc. In this review, we have attempted to focus on the bioactive properties of vanillin considering its potentially emerging pharmacological significance.
