ABSTRACT:
This study is conducted to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of one extract of Styrax officinalis L envelopes of berries plant belonging to the Styracae family collected from the coastal area surrounding the city of Lattakia, Syria. Many efforts have been made to discover a new antimicrobial from a variety of sources such as micro-organisms, animals and plants. One such source is Folk medicine. Systematic screening of them may result in the discovery of a new effective compound. These extracts are prepared with polar solvent (methanol) by the steeping extraction method. The antimicrobial activity of the extracts is then assessed using the disk diffusion method against gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus), and gram-negative (Escherichia coli) bacteria. The methanolic extracts of Styrax officinalis L envelopes of berries have shown antimicrobial activities against the tested bacteria. The activity is compared with potent broad spectrum antibiotics such as Cefipime, Amikacine and Ceftriaxon.
