Objectives: The present study was undertaken to provide information about bioactive compounds of Pseudoalteromonas luteoviolacea in the sea water samples collected from Rameswaram. Materials and Methods: The bioactive compounds were screened by various methods such as Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectroscopy (GC-MS), Fourier Infra Red Spectroscopy (FT-IR) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectrum activity. Results: In this study, over all 2 secondary metabolites / bioactive compounds were extracted from marine bacterial strains Pseudoalteromonas luteoviolacea. The Pseudoalteromonas luteoviolacea secrete 2 different bioactive compounds (4-(benzyloxy)-benzaldehyde and Propyl-4-Hydroxybenzoate) in the lab-scale fermentation broth. Conclusion: This study has been proven to be a profound resource on the development of natural product chemistry and upon the medical sciences. The improvement of natural products-based screening, rather than relying on synthetic sources, has been the aim of current pharmaceutical research and development. Alternative strategies to consider include the identification of potential new antibiotics from commercial crude bacterial fermentations.
