Abstract Share this page

Various fractions of ethanolic extract of Solieria robusta (Greville) Kylin (Rhodophyta) were screened for antifungal activity against 5 fruit spoiling fungi isolated from fruits. All fractions were able to inhibit fungal growth. Aqueous fraction showed maximum inhibition ratios followed by methanol, ethyl acetate, chloroform and ethanol. Elemental analysis was carried out for 11 elements viz., Ca, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, K, Mn, Mg, Ni, Pb and Zn. Accumulation of Cd was the lowest in S. robusta, while Mg was present with highest accumulation. Total protein of S. robusta was 25 to 32%.
