Abstract

Sida acuta is one of the Indian medicinal plants which belong to the family Malvaceae. The whole plant is reported to have many biological activities such as anthelmintic, antiemetic, demulcent, diuretic, aphrodisiac, stomachic, diaphoretic, antipyretic and wound healing properties. Therefore main aim of the present study is to evaluate the phytochemical constituents and the antibacterial activity of the aqueous extract of Sida acuta. The preliminary phytochemical screening has shown the presence of alkaloids, steriods, flavonoids, phenols, terpenoids, and cardiac glycosides. The maximum zone of inhibition was observed against Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli at the maximum tested concentration. The aqueous leaf extract of S. acuta have shown moderate anti-bacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. From this study, was concluded that, Sida acuta has rich phytochemical compounds, .thus the presence of these secondary metabolites attributed to treat various diseases.
