Note Isolation and Structure of Antimicrobial Substances from Paprika Seeds

Antimicrobial substances were isolated from the 50 % ethanol extract of paprika seeds by ODS open column chromatography and reverse phase HPLC. Ten compounds (1-10) which demonstrated antimicrobial activity against Saccharomyces cerevisiae (MIC= 1.3-2.6 mg/O were isolated. The structure of the major compound, 4 (MIC=2.6 mg/D, was determined to be 3P-O-{p-D… (More)
