GC-MS Analysis And Antimicrobial Evaluation Of Oldenlandia Corymbosa


The aim of the present study is finding out the bioactive chemical constituents and to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of the methanol extract of Oldenlandia corymbosa medicinal plant. This study involves the preliminary phytochemical screening separation and identification of phytocompounds. The methanolic extract was subjected to GC-MS analysis. Alkaloids, tannins, glycosides, terpenoids, steroids, flavonoids, and saponins are found in the plant extracts. The extract also was tested for antimicrobial activity by disc method. The extract of the plant showed antimicrobial activity against both gram (+) and gram (-) bacteria.
