What about riping of the OH- of chavicol ?

OH-Ph-CH2-CH=CH2

,or replace it with a F.

How is it done in the best way, does anyone have any sugestions?

You cannot easily get rid of oxygens stuck to aromatic rings. The only thing you can do is to alkylate it to an ether with an alkyl halide/K2CO3/acetone for example.
