Abstract:

Millingtonia hortensis Linn. (Bignoniaceae) commonly known as Cork tree, Akash neem, Neem chameli. It is an important medicinal plant in Southern Asia ranging from India, Burma, Thailand and Southern China, cultivated in most parts of India in gardens and avenues. It can grow up to 25 meter tall. Flowers have very rich and pleasant scent, used in the treatment of asthma, sinusitis, cholagogue, tonic and in rituals. The stem bark is used traditionally as mainly lung tonic, anti-asthmatic and antimicrobial properties. Leaves and roots of cork tree used as antiasthmatic and antimicrobial activity. Fruit is very long and narrow, pointed at both ends and contains thin, flat seeds. Trees do not seed very easily in India. The plant has antifungal, antibacterial, larvicidal, antioxidant, antiproliferative, antimutagenic, antihelmintic and hepatoprotective activities. The study was carried out to find the biochemical constituents and anti-bacterial activities of the bark extract of Millingtonia hortensis. The objectives of the study were to analyse the chemical constituents of the bark and to analyze the anti-bacterial activity of the bark of Millingtonia hortensis. In this study, an experiment was conducted to study the biochemical constituents of the bark, the extract was give for GCMS test to SITRA (South Indian Textile Research Association). The results reveals that the bark have four compounds which are all mainly used in medicinal propose. The anti-bacterial activity of the bark of Millingtonia hortensis is studied through laboratory Bacillus subtilis.
