ABSTRACT:
Preliminary phytochemical screening of whole plant of Sesbania grandiflora demonstrated the presence of flavonoids, glycosides, saponins, alkaloids and triterpenes. Antibacterial activity of methanolic extract of Sesbania grandiflora whole plant was tested by disc diffusion method. Zones of inhibition produced by methanolic extract in a dose of 62.5,125,250,500 and 1000µg/ml against some selected strains was measured and compared with those of standard discs of antibiotic ciprofloxacin (10 µg/ml).
KEYWORDS:
Sesbania grandiflora, antibacterial activity, disc diffusion.
