Title

antifungal activity of some medicinal plants and weeds

Abstract

The leaf extracts of Acacia arabica, Callistemon lanceolatus, Lantana camara, Mentha piperita, Murraya koenigii, Parthenium hysterophgrus showed significant antifungal activity against Aspergillus niger, A. fumigates, Cladosporium sp. and Penicillium spinulosum. 25% and 50% concentrations of the leaf extracts of Acacia arabica showed a substantial increase in inhibition of A. fumigatus, A .niger and Penicillium spinulosum. Callistemon lanceolatus leaf extract showed a pattern to inhibit A. fumigatus, Cladosporium species and Penicillium spinulosum. Lantana camara leaf extract showed maximum inhibition of A. fumigatus followed by A. niger and P. spinulosum in 50% concentration of leaf extract but at 25% concentration maximum inhibition of A. niger was found followed by A. fumigates and P. spinulosum. The leaf extracts of Mentha piperita also showed maximum inhibition of A. fumigatus and P. spinulosum at 50% and 25% concentration. The aqueous leaf extract of Murraya koenigii showed maximum inhibition of P. spinulosum followed by A. fumigatus and A. niger both at lower as well as higher concentrations. The leaf extract of Parthenium hysterophorus showed the maximum inhibition of P. spinulosum , A. niger, A. fumigatus and minimum inhibition of Cladosporium. Present paper deals with the applications of antimicrobial activity of six plants
