Antimicrobial Activity and Phytochemical Evaluation of Clitoria Ternatea

Indira Priya Darsini.A, S. Shamshad


Abstract: The aim of the present study was to investigate the antibacterial properties and phytochemical evaluation of of Clitoria ternatea. The organic solvent ( Ethanol, Methanol, Hexane) and water extracts from the whole plant of Clitoria ternatea (Fabacea) were tested against, Salmonella typhimurium, Proteus vulagaris, Shigella dysenteriae and a fungal pathogen Candida albicans by agar disc diffusion method. The results showed prominent antibacterial activity against the tested microbial pathogens. Of all those, methanol extract was found to give a strong antimicrobial effect when compared to the other extracts (Ethanol, Hexane and water). Phytochemicals like tannins, flavonoids, alkaloids, steroids and terpenoids are found. The anthraquinones and saponins were found to be absent in plant material observed.
