Abstract

Plants have been an important source of medicines since the beginning of cultivation. There is a growing demand for plant-based medicines, health products, pharmaceuticals, food supplements, cosmetics etc. Bombax cieba Linn. (Bombacaceae) is a tall tree buttressed at the base that is widely distributed throughout India. The present work was decided to evaluate the in-vitro antimicrobial and antioxidant activity of crude extract of Bombax cieba. Petroleum ether, Chloroform and Methanol extracts of B. cieba flower were prepared by maceration technique and subjected to preliminary phytochemical tests. The in-vitro anti-microbial activity of all extracts was assessed by well diffusion method and antioxidant activity was assessed by UV-VIS spectrophotometry method. Methanolic extract showed significant (p<0.001) response when compared with standard, Ofloxicin and Amphotericin B (10 µg/ml). The study suggests that the extracts possess enough potential to reduce microbial infection and reduced the free radical activity by in-vitro and directs the importance of further research and development of novel antimicrobial and antioxidant agents.

Key Words

Bombax cieba, antioxidants activity, antimicrobial activity, UV-VIS spectrophotometer etc.
