Phytochemical Compositions and Antibacterial Activities of Some Medicinal Plants Found in Aliero Area , Kebbi State , Nigeria

  title={Phytochemical Compositions and Antibacterial Activities of Some Medicinal Plants Found in Aliero Area , Kebbi State , Nigeria},
  author={Ibrahim Sani and Abubakar Abdulhamid},
In this research, hexane and acetone extracts of Bauhinia rufences, Securidaca longepedunculata and Ziziphus abyssinica were investigated for antibacterial activity. The phytochemical screening of the plants leaves extracts was conducted using standard methods of analyses. The effects of the two solvent extracts on the bacterial species (Escherichia coli, Psuedomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella typhi and Staphylococcus aereus) were determined using agar well diffusion method. The most susceptible…

Screening of selected indigenous plants of Lebanon for antimicrobial activity.
The chance to find antimicrobial activities was more apparent in methanol rather than water extracts of the same indigenous plants of Lebanon, with higher antimacterial activities in 20 microl methanolate extract-discs in comparison to that present in the 10 microl discs.
In vitro Antibacterial activity of Pimpinella anisum fruit extracts against some pathogenic bacteria
Only aqueous and 50% (v/v) methanol extract exhibited fair antibacterial activity against all the test bacteria whereas acetone and petroleum ether extract were not observed to inhibit the growth of any of the testacteria under study.
Antimicrobial properties and phytochemical constituents of the leaves of African mistletoe (Tapinanthus dodoneifolius (DC) Danser) (Loranthaceae): an ethnomedicinal plant of Hausaland, Northern Nigeria.
Phytochemical screening showed the common occurrence of anthraquinones, saponins, and tannins, a rare presence of alkaloids and the absence of phlobatannins in the hemi-parasite, and the antimicrobial activity and the presence or distribution of phytochemical substances in T. dodoneifolius appeared to be partly dependent on the host plant species.
Antibacterial activity of oleo-gum resins of Commiphora molmol and Boswellia papyrifera against methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
The petroleum ether, ethyl acetate, methanol and water extracts of the oleo-gum resins of two Arabian medicinal plants, Commiphora molmol Engl. ex Tschirch andBoswellia papyrifera Hochst were
The antibacterial activity and medicinal properties of ginger extracts were studied. Ginger extracts were obtained using solvents, n'hexane, ethyl acetate, e thanolic soxhlet and water. The extracts
Antimicrobial activity of selected Peruvian medicinal plants.
The antimicrobial activity of 36 ethanol extracts from 24 plants, all of them currently used in the Peruvian traditional medicine for the treatment of several infectious and inflammatory disorders,
Identification and quantification of some potentially antimicrobial anionic components in miswak extract.
Objective: To identify and quantify some potential antimicrobial anionic components in Salvadora persica root and stem aqueous extracts. Methods: Extraction of powdered root and stem samples was

The authors describe the rigorous scientific investigations of curcumin, from the ginger family, and of sulforaphane, from crucifers, to illustrate the long and demanding scientific process that is required to establish the safety and effectiveness of potential drugs from plants.
In vitro antimicrobial properties of Bridelia ferruginea on some clinical isolates.
In vitro antimicrobial properties of Bridelia ferruginea on some clinical isolates are demonstrated and these properties are consistent with those reported in previous studies of this type.
