Phytochemical Screening and Antibacterial Activities of Leaf Extracts of Terminalia catappa (Umbrella Tree)

Kankia H. I.


Abstract: The aqueous and organic solvent leaves extracts of Terminalia catappa were screened for antibacterial activity using hole in plate bioassay procedure. The extracts were also screened for their phytochemical constituents. Hexane (Hx) fractions at 30 90 mg/ml, showed activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Streptococcus viridians and Staphylococcus aureus. The chloroform (CHL) fractions also showed a significant (P < 0.05) activity on the three (3) Bacteria employed. The petroleum ether (PE), water ethanol extract (W/E) and aqueous water extract (W) all showed significant (P
