ABSTRACT:
Stem stores nutrients. It also supports leaf, flower, fruit growth, asexual reproduction. Hence, for the present study, Terminalia catappa stem was used for the analysis of phytochemicals, antimicrobial activity. The results of phytochemicals assessed in ethanol extract of Terminalia catappa stem through GC-MS/MS showed 13 compounds. Highest peak was observed with Propane, 1,1-diethoxy- (48.69) and t-Butyl hydrogen phthalate (33.26). All the other compounds showed moderate peaks in the range of 2.85 to 0.37. The antimicrobial nature of Terminalia catappa stem was possible with most of the phytochemicals identified. The antimicrobial activity was higher with fungi Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans on comparison with bacteria. The microbial activity was confirmed with zone of inhibition. The zone of inhibition observed was higher for fungi showing its antifungal potency.
