Abstract: Clove is one of the valuable spices. The present study examines the patenting activity in clove using data from different databases, namely, US patent database, PCT database, world - wide patent database of EPO, Japanese patent database, and the Indian patent database with INSDOC and Ekaswa A and Ekaswa B patent applications databases of TIFAC. In all, there were 594 patents relating to clove. The patenting activity was largely concentrated in USA,China and Japan. The national focus of R&D and the innovative activity was also examined. Each country has evolved its own niche. The overall thrust is to make use of the properties of clove or its extract as an ingredient in flavouring food and feed products, in medicine, dentifrices, surfactants and as an essence in cosmetics. The study highlights the important technological directions and gaps for further pursuing R&D in clove.
