Citrus peels were successively extracted with hexane, chloroform and acetone using a soxhlet extractor. The hexane and chloroform extracts were fractionated into alcohol-soluble and alcohol-insoluble fractions. These fractions were tested against different gram positive and gram negative bacteria. The EtOH-soluble fraction was found to be most effective. Fractionation of EtOH -soluble fraction on silica gel column yielded three polymethoxylated flavones, namely desmethylnobiletin, nobiletin and tangeretin. Their structures were confirm ed by UV, 1H, 13C NMR and mass spectral studies. The findings indicated a potential of these natural compounds as bio preservatives in food applications.

Keywords : Citrus reticulata; Polym ethoxylated Flavones; Antimicrobial Activity
