Note(s): Bioassay-guided fractionation of the ethanol extract of the brown alga Sporochnus pedunculatus led to the isolation of 2-(3′-methylbut-2′-enyl)-4- (1″, 1″-dimethylprop-2″ -enyl) phenol (1) as the only antimicrobial compound. This compound is a growth inhibitor of Candida albicans, Cryptococcus neoformans, and Bacillus subtilis. In this paper we report the isolation, identification, and biological activity of 1.Bioassay-guided fractionation of the ethanol extract of the brown alga Sporochnus pedunculatus led to the isolation of 2-(3′-methylbut-2′-enyl)-4- (1″, 1″-dimethylprop-2″ -enyl) phenol (1) as the only antimicrobial compound.
