Chemical Composition of Hura Crepitans Seeds and Antimicrobial Activities of its Oil

Muhammed Nasiru Abdulkadir, Isiaka Adekunle Amoo, Adeniyi Olufemi Adesina

Seeds of Hura crepitans (Sandbox tree) were decorticated, milled and homogenized to flour from which oil was extracted using solvent extraction method. Proximate, mineral and fatty acid compositions, as well as, antimicrobial activity of Hura creptians seed flour and oil were determined using standard test methods. Results of these determinations show that the seed has high crude fat content and is very rich in magnesium. Oleic acid is the most abundant fatty acid and contains more unsaturated fatty acids, but showed no observable antimicrobial activity against the test organisms; E. coli, P. aeruginosa, S. aureus and C. albicans.
