ABSTRACT:
The present study has been designed with the objective to examine the methanol extract of Tectona grandis L. leaves (family Verbenaceae). In order to investigate its antimicrobial potential against strains of Shigella flexneri, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhi, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumonia, Proteus vulgaris, Enterobacter aerogenes, Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans, Trichophyton rubrum. The methanolic extract was found to be the most effective and showed antimicrobial activity against the organisms tested. The zone of inhibition (mm) at various concentrations of methanolic extract of Tectona grandis L. was found in the range 50mg/20disc – 200mg/20disc on tested all the test organisms. The antimicrobial activity was more significant against Salmonella typhi i.e. 21.33 mm zonetion. The study revealed the methanol extract of Tectona grandis L. leaves against microbes.
