Abstract:
Phoenix loureiroi is commonly known as ‘chittetha’ and the plant leaves are used for household purpose. Preliminary chemical studies of the plant reveal the presence of glycosides, tannins & flavonoids. The main objective of the study is to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of Phoenix loureiroi thorn extract on E. colli, Bacillus & Streptococcus. Both the aqueous and ethanolic extracts showed good activity against all the microorganisms used. The crude extracts at a dose of 500mg/ml showed potent activity against E. colli, Bacillus & Streptococcus. Ethanolic extract was found to be more potent when compared with aqueous extracts.
