Abstract:

The main objective of the study was to find the antibacterial activity of plant Adhatoda vasica, Aegle marmelos, Aristolochia bracteolata, Cardiospermum halicacabum, Cordia myxa, Eclipta alba, Mukia maderaspatuna, Ocimum basilicum, Plectranthus ambionicus and Solanum xanthocarpum. The antibacterial activity was determined by the agar well diffusion method. The antibacterial activity was against three gram positive bacteria Bacillus subtilis, Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylcoccus aureus and two gram negative bacterial strains Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiella pneumoniae by using solvent extract Acetone Aqueous and Ethanol extract. For the present study these one plant were screened to detect the presence of the active metabolites like saponins, tannins and terpenoids.
