The phytochemical constituents are very essential components responsible for various biological activities of medical importance. In this study, the ethanolic and water extracts of leaves and stem of Crotalaria paniculata were quantitatively analysed for various phytochemicals and also tested for their antimicrobial activity against Micrococcus luteus, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermis, Escherichi coli, Pseudomonas aeriginosa, Pseudomonas cepacia, Shigella sp., Klebsiella pneumoniae, Salmonella typhi, Bacillus megaterium, and Bacillus subtilis. Resazurin dye reduction method was used for antimicrobial assay while the phytochemicals viz., tannins and flavonoids were determined from plant extracts. The results also revealed that the alkaloides and phenols were higher in ethanol and water extract of stem compared to the leaf extracts.

Keywords: Plant extracts, Medicinal plants. Phytochemicals
