efficacy of antibacterial activity of crude methanol, n-hexane, chloroform, ethyl acetate and aqueous extracts of Zizyphus jujuba
against some human pathogenic bacterial strains. Antibacterial and antifungal activities of Zizyphus jujuba
extract was carried out by using disc diffusion method. The crude methanol, n -hexane, chloroform, ethyl acetate and aqueous fractions showed 41.37, 44.82, 41.37, 55.17 and 44.82% activity against Enterobacter aerogenes
respectively. The crude methanolic extract and n-hexane fractions were inactive against Escherichia coli, S. pneumoniae
and Klebsella pneumonia
From this study, the extracts namely n-hexane, ethyl acetate and aqueous extracts of Zizyphus jujuba possess antibacterial activity.
