SCREENING OF PHYTOCHEMICALS, GC-MS BASED PHYTOCONSTITUENTS PROFILING AND ANTIBACTERIAL EFFICIENCY OF LEAVES EXTRACTS OF ANISOMELES MALABARICAAbstract
The present study aimed to determine the phytochemical components of the leaf extracts of A. malabarica, antimicrobial, antioxidant activities and GC-MS analysis. The leaves extracts have folklore and traditional applications in India. The polar and non-polar solvents extracts such as methanol, ethyl acetate, chloroform, hexane and water were used for various phytochemical analysis proved the existence of flavonoids, glycosides, phenols, 3terpenoids, tannins and alkaloids. Similarly, five different extracts of A. malabarica were tested for the antibacterial activities against five human pathogens. The present results revealed that, the different solvent extracts showed maximum zone of inhibition against all the tested strains. The plant extract was highly effective against E. coli and E. aerogenes. In addition, the extracts noted promising GC-MS analysis showed the presence of bioactive phytochemicals.
