Abstract:

An attempt was made to reveal the bioactive components and functional groups present in the chloroform extract of leaf of A. bracteata Retz. through GC-MS and FTIR analysis. Altogether twenty components were detected by GC-MS analysis. FTIR study revealed the presence of various functional groups related to Alcohol, carboxylic acid, alkanes, aldehydes, aromatic acids. The extract showed inhibitory activity against Vibrio harveyi, vibrio vulnificus, serratia marcescens.  From this investigation it can concluded that the chloroform extract of leaf of A. bracteata Retz. will be the alternative for the treatment of such threat full pathogens.


Keywords: bracteata Retz., Bioactive components,   Antimicrobial activity.
