The ethyl acetate extract of the leaves of Melicope vitiflora was separated by column chromatography and the resulting fractions tested for their bioactivity towards methicillin-resistant-Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Micrococcus luteus (ML). The bioactive column chromatography fractions were further separated by preparative TLC and dereplication was… CONTINUE READING
