Antifungal Activity of Essential Oils from Indian Medicinal Plants Against Human Pathogenic Aspergillus fumigatus and A. niger

  title={Antifungal Activity of Essential Oils from Indian Medicinal Plants Against Human Pathogenic Aspergillus fumigatus and A. niger},
  author={Sunita Bansod and Mahendra Rai},
Oils extracted from fifteen medicinal plants were screened for their activity against A. fumigatus and A. niger by disc diffusion method. Minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of oils (%v/v) against Aspergillus fumigatus and Aspergillus niger done by agar dilution method and minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum cidal concentration (MCCs) data (%v/v) obtained by the broth micro dilution method. The results showed that the maximum antimycotic activity was demonstrated by oils of…
