Abstract:

The present work study involves extraction of active ingredients from petals of Shoe flower (Hibiscus rosa sinensis), Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum indicum.), Ixora (Ixora coccinea), Jasmine (Jasminums ambac), Rose (Rosaindica), Catharanthus (Catharanthusroseus Pomegranate (Punica granatum) and to studied the antimicrobial activity on common human pathogens like Staphylococci aureus and Ecoli by agar well diffusion method. It is inferred that the crude extract of the petals of C.roseus, Jasmine, Ixora have satisfactory activity against Staphylococci aureus and E. coli, expected Chrysanthemum has satisfactory antimicrobial activity against Staphylococci aureus but not against E coli. The present findings suggest that the petals of C.roseus can be used as antibacterial agent in new drugs for therapy against E.coli and Staphylococci aureus.


Keywords: Shoe flower Chrysanthemum, Ixora,Jasmine, Rose.
