In vitro Antimicrobial Activity and Phytochemical Analysis of few Indian Medicinal Plants

Gomathi Rajashyamala L | Elango V


Abstract: The antibacterial effect of some selected Indian medicinal plants was evaluated on bacterial species like Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Staphylococcus aureus, pseudomonas aeuroginosa and the fungal species candida albicans. The solvent used for the extraction of plants was methanol. The in vitro antimicrobial activity was performed by agar disc diffusion method. The extracts of crataeva nurvala could not inhibit any of the microbial strains investigated. The most active antibacterial and antifungal plant was Evolvulus alsinoides. The significant antimicrobial activity of active extracts was compared with the standard antimicrobics, chloromphenical for bacteria (30 l/disc) and fluconazole for fungi (30 l/disc). The results obtained in the present study suggest that Evolvulus alsinoides can be used in treating diseases caused by the test organisms.
