Melanins are natural pigments widely distributed in nature from bacteria to humans. These complex, negatively charged, amorphous, high molecular mass natural biopolymers have many different bioactive properties such as antimicrobial, antiviral, antioxidant, liver protective effects, etc. In this study, some chemical and physical properties of the purified extracellular pyomelanin pigment were investigated via XRD (X-ray diffraction), FT-IR (Fourier transform infrared), and H NMR (Nuclear magnetic resonance).
