Medicinal plants may offer a natural and new source of antibacterial agents. Many species growing in Algeria such as Euphorbia guyoniana have been used as medicinal plants in the treatment for skin diseases. The present work focuses essentially on the phytochemical screening of 5 species namely: Parentucellia viscosa, Verbascum signatum, Ecbalium elaterium, Scabiosa atropurpura, and Euphorbia guyoniana. 250 phytochemical tests have been carried out among which 67.20 % were positive. It is worth… Expand
