Abstract

The present study aimed at evaluating the in vitro antimicrobial activity of methanolic extracts of some medicinal plants against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumonia, Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella Typhi. The selection of methanolic extracts was based on the phytochemical screening for presence of secondary metabolites. The methanolic extract of Alstonia scholaris presented the highest anti-S. aureus activity and was effective against all bacterial strains tested.
