Abstract

The intention of this project was to find potential antimicrobial properties within ginger. This was done by isolating gingerol, shogaol, and zingiberene. These compounds are the defining components of ginger. After extraction, each compound was individually tested for antimicrobial properties. The effectiveness of the compounds was observed.
