Phytochemical analysis and antimicrobial activity of Trichilia emetical Vahl (Meliaceae)

Author(s):

Ibrahim T Babalola and Esther A Adelakun

Abstract:
The crude methanol extract of the stem bark of Trichilia emetical Vahl was assayed. The crude methanol extract displayed a considerable antifungal activity against Trichophyton tonsurans, Aspergillus flavus and Candida albicans and anti-bacteria activity against Proteus mirabilis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, staphilococus aureus with MIC and MBC between 6.25-25.omg/ml. Phytochemical screening of the plant extract revealed the presence of saponins, steroids/triterpenes, cardiac glycosides, tannins, flavonoids and anthraquinones. Alkaloids were absent in the plant extract.
