The present study was carried out to isolate and identify antibacterial compound of atung (Parinarium glaberrimum Hassk) seed. Based on the MS and NMR spectroscopic data, the chemical structure of compound was determined as nonanedioic acid (azelaic acid). This compound exhibited considerably strong antibacterial activities against six tested strains of food spoilage and pathogenic bacteria with 20-30 μg mL-1 of minimum inhibitory concentration.
