Comprehensive Analysis of Antioxidant and Antimicrobial Properties of Aegle Marmelos Leaf Extracts

Laxmi Chaudhari | Dr. Dipali Gulwade


Abstract: In the existing study, we carried out an antimicrobial activity of serial water, ethanol, methanol, and acetone extract from leaves of Aegle marmelos investigated against bacterial species. All the extracts exhibited antimicrobial activity with zones of inhibition ranging from 8 to 13mm against bacteria Staphylococcus aureus and antimicrobial activity was not found against Escherichia coli. The physical parameters were determined as pH, total ash, acid soluble ash, acid insoluble ash value, water extract, ethanol extract, methanol extract, and acetone extract. phytochemical screening revealed the presence of phenols, carbohydrates, alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids, and saponins in extracts. The FTIR spectra of water extract, methanol extract, ethanol extract, and acetone extract were also performed. The FTIR spectra analysis gives an idea about the different functional groups present in this sample and it can be isolated and can be used as the active components of this natural plant for further drug preparation. The free radical scavenging activity of different extracts was evaluated by using the DPPH method. The free radical scavenging effect was observed in leaves with IC50 = 28.45?g ml-1. The ability of the leaf extracts of Aegle marmelos to inhibit the growth of bacteria is an indication of its broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity which could be a potential source for the development of novel bioactive antimicrobial agents.
