Wood vinegar is referred to as pyroligneous acid or liquid smoke, and is a dark liquid obtained through the carbonization, which appears from the heating of a biomass in the absence of oxygen and airless container, during the charcoal or biochar production. The exhaust smoke from this charcoal production is cooled into a liquid, and further separates into vinegar, tar, and bio-oil. Wood vinegar can be made from tree wood. Wood vinegar contains more than 250 constituents, which include ester, phenol, acetic acid, methanol, ketone, formic acid, and many others. The main components of wood vinegar are acetic acid, methanol, and acetone. Wood vinegar has a bactericidal effect, as well as the ability to generate microbes. In addition, it has qualities of root taking out, which provides a growth persuading effect. However, depending on the volume of the mixture, it can also be used to retard the growth of the plant. Wood vinegar is neither considered, as an agrichemical nor a fertilizer. Though, when it is properly used, it increases the intake of fertilizers and reduces the damages by various diseases. Wood vinegar enhances planting, helps to increase the fertility of soil, and balance of the microbiological population. Moreover, it also increases the life of the roots, and hence supports proper uptake of nutrients.
