Abstract


Objective: To isolate phytosterols from Bignonia venusta (L.) and its antimicrobial activity.

Introduction: B. venusta is an important medicinal plant known for its vast potential. It is a valuable plant which is commonly used in traditional system of medicine for relieving pain and inflammation, as well as in a number of metabolic disorders such as diabetes and obesity.

Methods: In the present study, phytosterols from B. venusta was identified and quantified in vivo. Phytosterols were identified using chromatographic and spectral studies.

Conclusion: B. venusta (L.) is an ideal source of phytosterols and act as antimicrobial agent.
