Hi,
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!

If your interested in different anti-biotics I know that certain molds like Penicillium mold (which is used for penicillin) are used for anti-biotics. I also know that silver has anti-biotic properties, which is often incorporated in plastics and silicon, which you may want to research (http://www.alibaba.com/catalog/10778238 ... r_Ion.html , http://www.all-natural.com/silver-1.html). Good luck.

Hi,

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,

Barrett Tomlinson
