The agar diffusion method was used to examine the antibacterial activity of different solvent extracts of Biophytum sensitivum tested against Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumonia, and Staphylococcus aureus. For qualitative phytochemical investigation, several solvent extracts of the complete Biophytum sensitivum plant were investigated. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of Biophytum sensitivum ethanol extract had significant antimicrobial effectiveness against Escherichia coli (152 µg/ml), and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (165 µg/ml). The ethanolic extract showed (198 µg/ml and 207 µg/ml) antimicrobial activity against Klebsiella pneumonia and Staphylococcus aureus respectively. The lowest antibacterial activity was found in hexane extract with MIC (412 µg/ml) of Biophytum sensitivum.
