Abstract
Characteristic of chemical constituent and antibacterial property from Etlingera elatior fruit have been carried out. Essential oil of plant was extracted using steam and water distillation and then analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Antibacterial activity of the essential oil was done through disc diffusion method against Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus aureus, Eschericia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Percentage yield of essential oil was about 0,09% (v/w). The GC-MS profile revealed that E. elatior contained 35 compounds where 1-dodecanol, dodecanal and trans-caryophyllene were predicted to be main components. The oil showed activity against B. Cereus, S. Aureus, E. Coli, and P. aeruginosa with zone of inhibition were about 25, 15.2, 11.67 and 12.33 mm respectively.
