ABSTRACT:
The present study was conducted to analyze the phytochemicals like tannins, Saponins, Flavonoids, terpenoids, steroids, glycosides, reducing sugar, resins and anthocyanins in the ethanolic extract of the leaf of Ficus racemosa by standard procedure. The antimicrobial activity of the plant extract was evaluated against the three bacteria and three fungi at different concentrations by using disc diffusion and agar well diffusion methods. The plant sample was found to be bacteriostatic and fungistatic in action, thus can be used as a source of antibiotic agents for drug development that can be used in the control of these bacterial and fungal species.
