Abstract:

Four different extracts of Murraya Koenigii(Rutaceae) leaves were screened for their phytochemical composition and antimicrobial activity. The present study investigates the qualitative and quantitative analysis of the major phytochemicals in four different extracts of Murraya Koenigii. The constituents screened for were tannins, saponins, flavanols, flavonoids, total phenolic compounds, proanthocyanidins, carotenoids, alkaloids, glycosides, reducing sugars and aminoacids. The antimicrobial activity of the extracts against Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus luteus, Bacillus subtilus, Psedomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Candida albicans and Aspergillus Niger were screened. The study shows that all the extracts posses’ remarkable antimicrobial and antifungal activity.
