IN VITRO EVALUATION OF ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY OF PETROLEUM ETHER FRACTION FROM HETEROPHRAGMA ADENOPHYLLUM LEAVES EXTRACT
Vilas Surana*, Dinesh R. Shah and Sri Hari Mishra
The present study aimed to evaluate the in vitro antimicrobial activity of petroleum ether fraction from Heterophragma adenophyllum leaves extract against Escherichia coli, Salmonella enterica, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus anthracis and Klebsiella pneumonia broad spectrum microorganism. Study was carried out by using standard nutrient broth for microbes and gentamicine were taken as positive control. Petroleum ether fraction used as test sample and DMSO as negative control. From the results of zone of inhibition it was concluded that the petroleum ether fraction were pusses in vitro antimicrobial activity while results of minimum inhibitory concentration, it was reveal that all bacterial strains were sensitive towards selected fraction for the study.
Keywords: Antimicrobial, Heterophragma Adenophyllum, Petroleum Ether Fraction.
