Abstract

Syringaldehyde, readily reacted in the horse-radish peroxidase (HRPOD) system. The ethyl acetate extract of the reaction mixture showed a marked antimicrobial activity against bacteria and fungi. After repeated column chromatography three potential antimicrobial compounds were obtained from the extract. The structural elucidation of active compounds was achieved by a combination of spectroscopic techniques and chemical modification.
