Walnuts, Ringworm and Ewe: Juglone Isolation and Analysis
Krista L. Ramage* and Danielle M. Stacy
Dr. Anne E. Moody, Faculty Mentor

Juglone, a substance found within the walnut shell, is suggested to be a preventative and/or a treatment for ringworm. Various extraction methods have been pursued and analyzed to optimize the isolation of juglone for analysis. Upon extraction, the juglone was characterized by IR and NMR spectroscopy, using a commercial standard for comparison. A GC method is under development for quantifying the amount of juglone in each walnut. This method will be used to determine long-term stability of the juglone in the walnut samples.
