Comparative analysis of chemical composition and antibacterial activities of and Mentha spicata Camellia sinensis

  title={Comparative analysis of chemical composition and antibacterial activities of and Mentha spicata Camellia sinensis},
  author={Ekambaram Padmini and A Valarmathi and M. B. Usha and Rani},
The study aim was to evaluate the antibacterial activities in the aqueous extracts of mint, tea and tea enriched with mint and to correlate the results with their mineral components and biologically active constituents. Antibacterial property of plant extracts were determined by agar gel diffusion method against microorganisms such as Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhi and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Mineral contents were determined by Spectrophotometry and the chemical constituents of the…
