Abstract

This study examined the antibacterial activity of moso bamboo shoot skin (Phyllostachys pubescens). Bamboo shoot skin itself and its dichloromethane extract had antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus. Results suggest the possibility of effective utilization of antibacterial materials from bamboo shoot skins that are mainly discarded at present.
