ABSTRACT
Phytochemical studies indicated that the leaves of medicinal plants contain a broad spectrum of secondary metabolites. The preliminary phytochemical analysis of E. hirta, M. alba, A. indica, S. cumini, P. emblica, T. peruvian, and C. fistula was done. Qualitative phytochemical analysis of these plants confirmed the presence of various phytochemicals like alkaloids, flavonoids, tannins, terpenoid, saponin, steroid and cardiac glycosides in their leaf extracts. The methanolic leaf extract analysis using Agar well diffusion method showed significant antibacterial activity against Klebsiella pneumoniae, Micrococcus luteus, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas flurensis, Bacillus megateriam, Citrobacter braaki and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. It was found to be effective against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Results indicate that S. cumini, P. emblica, and C. fistula, plants showed maximum antimicrobial activity.
