Abstract


The aim of this study is to determine the antimicrobial activity and phytochemical constituents of heart wood of pterocarpus marsupium. The alcoholic extract of heart wood of pterocarpus marsupium was tested against two gram positive (Enterococci and Staphylococcus aureus) and negative (Escherichia coli and pseudomonas aeruginosa) microbial organisms and a fungal strain Candida albicans. The heart wood extract was also evaluated for determining the phytochemical constituents. All the microorganisms tested were sensitive to the extract which demonstrated the positive activity of the extract. The phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of saponins, tannins triterpenes and flavonoids which could also be responsible for the antidiabetic activity of the plant extract.
