Abstract: The ethanol extraction of roots of the fresh Coriandrum Sativum were screened for the presence of various phytochemicals by standard procedures. The present study indicates that the fresh roots contain alkaloids, flavonoids, terpenoids, sterols, carbohydrates, saponins and phenolic compounds. The ethanol extract of roots was found to be exhibit Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus, Salmonella typhi, Klebsiella and Candida. The extract and fractionates of fresh roots of Coriandrum sativum showed a significant and remarkable activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus, Salmonella typhi, Klebsiella, when compared to standard. The present work shows the presence of these biologically active chemical in Coriandrum Sativum may justify their wide usage in traditional medicine.
