To study antibacterial activities of Ganoderma lucidum, its extract was fractionated by various organic solvents with different polarities and the fractions were purified by thin layer chromatography and silica gel column chromatography. The results of antibacterial test of the extracts showed that antimicrobial activities were detected in fractions B and E of the ethylacetate extract. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of fraction B to Staphylococcus aureus and to Salmonella typtimurium were 0.8% (8,000 ppm). MIC of fraction E to Staphylococcus aureus was 0.185% (1,875 ppm).
