Alk(en)yl sulfides derived from S-alk(en)yl-L-cysteine sulfoxides in garlic and onion were chemically synthesized, and their antimicrobial activities were determined. Both garlic oil (GO) and onion oil (OO) showed equal antimicrobial activities, with minimum inhibitory concentrations of 25 and 100 ppm against Candida utilis ATCC42416 and Staphylococcus aureus B31, respectively. Number of carbons in alk(en)yl group and sulfur atoms in molecules influenced antimicrobial activity of sulfides… Expand
