Common name: Juglone
Short description: Juglone is used as a natural herbicide.
Keyword: walnut
Keyword: hair dye
Keyword: herbicide
CSD refcode: TELYAK
IUPAC name: 5-Hydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinone
Layman's explanation: Juglone is produced in the tissue of members of the walnut family. It is secreted into the soil and stunts the growth of other plants around it by affecting the processes of respiration. It can be found in many consumer products like hair dye and walnut oil stain. There have been no reported cases of toxicity in humans but there has been in horses. Juglone seems to cause sedative effects on animals.
