Abstract:

Moringa oleifera Leaf (Moringaceae) is a very useful tree in tropical countries. The antimicrobial activity of Acetone, Chloroform, Methanol and Petroleum ether extract of Moringa oleifera leaf against ten microorganisms Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Streptococcus pyogens, Bacillus Sp, Proteus Sp Salmonella Sp Streptococcus mutants, Shigella sp along with positive controls. It was observed that methanol extract of Moringa oleifera showed highest antimicrobial activity against while petroleum their extract exhibited greater antimicrobial activity against all the tested bacteria. So this plant extracts having good healing properties without side effects when compared with synthetic antibiotics.


Keywords: Moringa oleifera Leaf,Antibacterial activity, Phytochemical analysis.
