Is this also your post?
You can find information about your topic by searching on the web for "antibacterial properties of plants", "plant antiseptics" and similar terms.
Good luck!

I also know that silver has anti-biotic properties, which is often incorporated in plastics and silicon, which you may want to research ( ... r_Ion.html , Good luck.

I am sorry to hear you are having so much trouble finding an acceptable project. I can point you to a discussion on Bromelain which might interest you:


If this does not meet your needs, I recommend looking at the Science Fair Idea guide on this site, in the life science idea section.

Best wishes,
