Phytochemical and antibacterial studies on bark extracts of Saraca asoca (Roxb.) against pathogenic bacteria



Phytochemical and antibacterial studies on bark extracts of Saraca asoca (Roxb.) against pathogenic bacteria



Biochemical and Cellular Archives 7(2): 293-298



The phytochemical and antibacterial studies on the bark extract of Saraca asoca (Roxb.) have been reported. Antibacterial activity was investigated against clinically important bacteria viz. Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Serratia rubidaea, Serratia marcescens, Lactobacillus sp, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella typhi, Proteus vulgaris and Bacillus pumilus. 10 mg/ml Acetone and Benzene extracts of bark were found to possess high to moderate antibacterial activity against a wide range of bacteria, as revealed by in vitro. Disc diffusion method followed by determination of minimum inhibitory concentration with regard to phytochemicals Alkaloids, Phenolic compound, Flavonoides and carbohydrates were detected in the bark of Saraca asoca(Roxb).
