Abstract: The hydroalcholic extract of the roots of Dipsicus inermis were investigated for their in vitro phytochemical, antibacterial and antifungal activities. The preliminary phytochemical screening of plant extract shows the existence of proteins, protein sulphur, carbonate, terpenes, saponin, tanic and phenolic compounds. The disc diffusion method of the extract of Dipsicus inermis showed significant antibacterial and antifungal activities when tested against eight bacterial strains and four fungal strains. The result indicated that the extract inhibited the growth of selected bacteria and fungi. Thin layer chromatography carried out on the root extract confirms the presence of various phytochemicals. The results obtained in the present study suggest that root extract of Dipsicus inermis could be useful in treating diseases caused by the test organisms.
