Abstract:

Herbal extract application on textile substances are in great demand around the globe. It will give a new direction towards the treatment of various diseases through textile industry. Vitex negundo or nirgundi (Banna) is a medicinal plants having antimicrobial properties. Vitex negundo, a large aromatic shrub with typical five foliolate leave pattern, is found throughout the greater part of India at warmer zones and ascending to an altitude of 1500 m in outer, Western Himalayas. In present study Vitex negundo leave’s extract was used to assess the antibacterial activity on cotton fabric. Extraction of phytochemicals was carried out using different solvents like ethanol and aqueous. Total phenolic content (TPC) results revealed that TPC of Vitex negundo leave’s extract were highest in case of ethanolic extraction as compared to aqueous. It was observed that mild to moderate antibacterial properties were present in ethanolic extract as compared to aqueous extract. Clear zone of inhibition was observed on cotton fabric against E coli and S. aureus. This study thus explored the antimicrobial functionality of cotton fabric coated with plant extract as value added textile product.
