ABSTRACT:
The leaf powder of Mimosa pudica, Psidium guajava and Ipomoea aquatica forsk leaves were investigated against different spices of Gram negative bacteria i.e Shigella sonnei, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella typhi, Escherichia Coli and fungi are Aspergillums niger, Candida albicans. The screening was performed by standard disc diffusion method. The leaf extract exhibited the highest antibacterial activity against E. Coli with 15±3mm zone of inhibition and for fungi the leaf extract have more anti fungal activity on Aspergillus niger 14±1mm zone of inhibition.
KEYWORDS:
Anti microbial activity, gram negative bacteria, fungi, disc diffusion method
