Abstract: Natural occurrence of a compound, mono-ethylhexylphthalate (MEHP) in one of the column fractions of marine macro-algae Sargassum wightii with promising antibacterial activity is examined. Infrared spectroscopy disclosed the presence of one acid group, one ester group, aromatic and aliphatic chains. 1H and 13C NMR spectra along with IR data predicted the structure of MEHP. Abundance of MEHP in the column fraction IV of S. wightii and its effective antibacterial activity points toward the potential utility of macro-algae Sargassum wightii as a source of novel biomedical compound.
