Abstract: This study investigates the biogenic volat ile organic compounds of some plants, such as Liquidambur f orsana and Cinamomum camphora, and their antibacterial activity to Escherichia coli , Staphylococcus albus , Bacillus subtilis and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The results show that some plants have good effect iveness of bacteriostasis, these plants include Cinamomum camphora, Liquidambur f orsana and Pittosporum tobira. From the view of environmental ecology,it is beneficial to the construction of an eco- city when choosing the ant ibacterial plants as virescence plants.

Key words: plants, bacteria, antibacterial activity
