Hexahydrolupulone, derived from hop beta acids, has great potential as an antimicrobial agent. This study focused on the synthesis and characterization of ester derivatives of hexahydrolupulone and their antimicrobial effects on four microorganisms including Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, Pseudomona aeruginosa, and Escherichia coli. Analysis of the ester derivatives was done through IR and proton NMR spectroscopy. Testing of the antimicrobial effects of each compound was accomplished using the disk assay method.
