Phytochemical, GC-MS Analysis and Antibacterial Activity of Bioactive Compounds of Petroleum Ether Leaf Extracts of Salix viminalis

  title={Phytochemical, GC-MS Analysis and Antibacterial Activity of Bioactive Compounds of Petroleum Ether Leaf Extracts of Salix viminalis},
  author={Mohd Sadiq S. Zarger and F. Khatoon},
Medicinal Plants have been used for centuries as remedies for human illness. The objectives of the study was to isolate and analyze phytochemical constituents of Petroleum ether leaf extracts of Salix viminalis and their antibacterial activity against Escherichia coli SN 1224 (Gram -ve), Salmonella typhi SN 0464 (Gram –ve) and Staphylococcus aureus SN 1175 (Gram +ve). Preliminary phytochemical screening of the extract was carried out according to the standard methods, which showed presence of…

Evaluation of genoprotection against malathion induced toxicity by Orthosiphon thymiflorus Sleesen
Genoprotective effect of O. thymiflorus against malathion induced toxicity was confirmed and it significantly decreased the frequency of micronuclei and improved PCE/NCE value in post treated groups of animals.
Contact killing of Escherichia coli K12 and Staphylococcus cohnii on copper containing and alloyed materials
The antimicrobial effect of pure copper and new, potentially antimicrobial eutectic alloys composed of aluminium, silver and/or copper was investigated under wet contact killing conditions and showed that special casting protocols need to be in progress to obtain antimicrobial effects.


Extraction methods and bioautography for evaluation of medicinal plant antimicrobial activity
A comparative study on the antimicrobial properties of extracts from medicinal plants obtained by two different methods indicated that the diethyl ether extracts were the most efficient antimicrobial compounds.

Molecular characterization of an enterotoxin from Salmonella typhimurium.
An intriguing similarity in a small region of the amino acid sequence of Stn was observed with portions of the Amino acid sequences from several other protein toxins known to ADP-ribosylate host cell proteins, which may indicate a conserved motif, within the active site, that is involved in the stimulation of adenylate cyclase activity.
No interactive effects of pesticides and plant diversity on soil microbial biomass and respiration
Non-target effects of pesticides are widespread and potentially modify essential ecosystem processes. Since microorganisms are major soil decomposers driving key processes such as organic matter
