Ashutosh Kumar Singh [4] | Dr. Jagriti Sharma

Abstract: Coral jasmine, Night Blossoming Jasmine, and Parijat are other similar names for Nyctanthes arbor - tristis. In this study, an effort was made to observe & check into anti bacterial characteristics of Nyctanthes arbor - tristis. The aforementioned plants' leaves were collected for the study and turned into a basic powder which later made extract using Soxhlet apparatus. The gram - negative bacterium Klebsiella pneumonia & gram - positive bacterium Staphylococcus aureus were utilised to carry out the antibacterial activities. The disc diffusion method also known as Kirby - Baeur method was utilised to test antibacterial activity. Test extract in methanol solvent exhibited strong antibacterial activity against harmful bacteria. The data revealed that Nyctanthes arbor - tristis methanol extract displays maximum antibacterial activity.
