Abstract

Nowadays, the use of medicinal plants and bioactive phytocompounds has seen a more growing interest. The present study investigated the qualitative screening of phytochemicals and evaluation of the antimicrobial activity of leaf extract of Mangifera indica. Aqueous, chloroform and butanol extracts of dried and ground plant materials were prepared using Soxhlet apparatus. Qualitative phytochemical screening of the extracts showed positive for carbohydrates, chloride, tannins, alkaloids, flavanoids, saponins phenolic compounds and steroids. Antimicrobial activities of the extracts were evaluated by agar well diffusion method. The extracts exhibited significant antimicrobial effects against all the tested bacterial and fungal pathogens. The aqueous extracts of leaf showed highest activity on the Gram positive bacteria S.aureus and fungus A.fumigatus. The analysis of bioactive compounds present in the plant extracts involving the applications of common phytochemical screening assay as well as FT-IR are discussed. The research findings concluded that the presence of phytochemical components and antimicrobial activity.
