ANTI BACTERIAL POTENTIAL OF ETHANOLIC EXTRACT OF Syzgium aromaticum L. AND PHYTOCHEMICALS ISOLATION BY HPTLC
Keywords:antimicrobial activity, E.coli, staphylococcus aureus, HPTLC
Organic extract of buds of syzgium aromaticum were screened for their antimicrobial activity against two humam pathogenic bacteria by disc diffusion assay. The pattern of inhibition varied with the various concentration of solution solvent used for extraction and the microorganism tested .among the ethanol extract, have potential to make inhibition zone against E.coli and Staphylococcus aureus . The results obtained with bud extract activity, a property that supports traditional use of their plants in treatment of some disease as broad spectrum antimicrobial agents. The presence of flavanoids was also identified by HPTLC.
