Abstract

Ethanol extracts from Mallotus japonicus Muell exhibited strong antimicrobial activities by paper disc diffusion method on the five strains of Listeria monocytogenes(ATCC 19111, ATCC 19112, ATCC 19113, ATCC 19114 and ATCC 15313). Ethanol extract from Mallotus japonicus Muell was subsequently fractionated by n-hexane, chloroform, ethyl acetate and water. n-Hexane fraction of Mallotus japonicus Muell showed strong growth inhibition at concentrations as low as 20 ppm level in broth culture medium on the five strains of L. monocytogenes for 72 hr at $30^{\circ}C$. Single substance(M34-4-4) was isolated from n-hexane fraction of Mallotus japonicus Muell. M34-4-4 showed a bactericidal activity against L. monocytogenes at a concentration of 50 ppm level. The purified M34-4-4 was identified as linolenic acid by $^1H-NMR,\;DEPT-135\;and\;^{13}C-NMR$.
