Abstract

Objectives: To study the antimicrobial property of 50percent aqueous ethanolic leaf extract of Acacia nilotica (L.) Willd. against few micro organisms.

Method: The leaves of Acacia nilotica (L.) Willd. were sequentially soaked in petroleum  ether (60-800 C), chloroform, benzene and 50percent aqueous ethanol, extracts were collected, filtered and concentrated. Antimicrobial potentiality of the extracts were tested against few micro-organisms.

Result: Acacia nilotica (L.) Willd. exhibited antifungal effect against Rhizoctonia solani.

Conclusion: The plant leaf extract can be used as antimicrobial agent against Rhizoctonia solani

Key words: phytochemical products, antimicrobial property, bioassay.
