Phytochemical and Antimicrobial Screening of Senna italica Mill. Leaf
The use of medicinal plants has gained more importance because of their natural origin and high therapeutic significance. The bioactive compounds detect of methanol and aqueous from the leaves of Senna italica showed non-ketone compounds, glycosides, terpenoids and steroids. The ongoing work scope us to study the impact of methanol and watery leaf juice on Senna italica with against bacteria (Gram positive Staphylococcus aureus and Gram negative Escherichia coli) and fungal (Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus) activity. In general, among the extracts showed methanol reveals higher inhibition than with watery extracts. However, it was evidence that aqueous extract. It was evident that at higher concentrations magnitude the zone of inhibition in higher level.
