Abstract:

To assess the phytochemical analysis and antimicrobial activities of F. schweinfurthii plant were examined against five different gram positive and gram negative bacteria. Traditionally, Fagonia has been used to cure diseases such as skin eruptions, heal sores, skin diseases, anti-pyretic, pain relief, ear infection and venereal diseases. The distilled water, methanol, benzene, chloroform, pet ether & toluene extracts of F. schweinfurthii investigated individually for antimicrobial activity (antibacterial activity) by agar well diffusion method. These were investigated against selected bacterial species strains of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus and Proteus vulgaris to find the inhibitory activities of the microbes. The methanol extract of F. schweinfurthii stem & root showed considerably high activity against K. pneumonia and E. coli than other extracts.
