Abstract:
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a member of a plant kingdom family, and important in consumed dietary and also as a traditional medicine to treat various types of diseases. Ginger is composed of several bioactive compounds curcumene, zingberene, zingereone, gingerol derivatives. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the phytochemical compositions of four ginger extracts (water, ethanol, chloroform and petroleum ether (40-60 ο C) as well as soxhlet and oil extract products. In addition, to estimate total phenol contents, antioxidant activity using DPPH assay methods. The chemical compositions of oil and ethanolic extract were analyzed using UV, FTIR, TLC and GC-MS techniques. The antibacterial activity of ginger extracts against various human pathogenic bacteria was determined by agar diffusion method, minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC), as well as catalytic activity as reducing agent in silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were determined.
