Antimicrobial activity of methanolic extract of Dodonaea viscosa leaves


Sanjeevkumar Giri

The leaves of Dodoneae viscose were collected in the month of September from in and around Vijayapura and Gulbarga districts and shade dried to make a dry powder. The powdered leaves were subjected to soxhlet extraction using methanol. The leaves are rich in alkaloids, glycosides and saponins along with other phytochemicals which are in traces. The extract was screened for antimicrobial activity against the organisms Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Aspergillus niger and Aspergillus flavus following cup- plate method. The results of antimicrobial screening of methanolic extract were encouraging.
