Abstract

The antimicrobial activity of petroleum ether, Chloroform and Methanol extract obtained from Abutilon indicum was tested against Gram-negative bacteria like Escherichia coli ATCC 69314, Klebsiella pneumoniae NCIM 2719, Pseudomonas aeruginosa NCIM 2200 and Agrobacterium tumefaciens NCIM 2943 and two strains of Gram-positive bacteria Staphylococcus aureus NCIM 2080 and Bacillus subtilis MTCC 441,using agar well diffusion method. In this study, the highest antibacterial potentials were observed against Streptococcus aereus (18.72±0.01mm), Pseudomoas aeruginosa (17.49±0.14mm). Klebsiella pneumoniae (17.15±0.03) and less activity found against Escherichia coli (9.75±0.13) Our finding suggest that the petroleum ether and methanol extract of abutilon indicum has potent antibacterial activity against the pathogenic strains of pseudomonas aeruginosa, streptococcus aeures and Klebsiella pneumoniae.
