Abstract Share this page

Six different organic solvents such as n-butanol, petroleum ether, methanol, ethyl acetate and chloroformwere used to extract the bioactive compounds from the fruits of Abelmoschus esculentus to screen theantibacterial activity against infectious disease causing bacterial pathogens such as Bacillus subtilis,Streptococcus pyogens, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Proteusmirabillis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa by paper disc method. The butanolic extract of Abelmoschusesculentus was more active against almost 90% of the organism tested. It was followed by Ethyl acetate, Methanol, Petroleum ether, Chloroform in inhibiting the growth of organism tested.
