Abstract

Three medicinal plants - Abutilon mauritianum check for this species in other resources , Bacopa monnifera check for this species in other resources and Datura stramonium check for this species in other resources were assessed for phytochemical components and antimicrobial activity. The results revealed that all the three plant extracts contained saponins, tannins and alkaloids. Only Datura stramonium contained glycosides. The plants exert varying inhibitory effects on Pseudomonas aeruginosa check for this species in other resources , Klebsiella pneumonia check for this species in other resources and Escherichia coli check for this species in other resources . The minimum inhibitory concentration of the plant extracts ranged between 10% (w/v) ( Bacopa monnifera check for this species in other resources ) and 25% (w/v) (A. mauritianum and D. stramonium). Extracts of Abutilon mauritianum, Bacopa monnifera and Datura stramonium could be potential sources of chemotherapeutic agents.
