Ficus glomerata stem bark, antimicrobial activity, agar diffusion method, phytochemical analysis
The antibacterial activity of several solvent extracts of Ficus glomerata evaluated against Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumonia, and Staphylococcus aureus was investigated using the agar diffusion technique. Several solvent extracts of the stem bark of Ficus glomerata plant were examined for qualitative phytochemical analysis. The ethanol extract of Ficus glomerata demonstrated substantial antibacterial activity at the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) against Escherichia coli (162 µg/ml) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (171 µg/ml). With (199 µg/ml of Klebsiella pneumonia and 203 µg/ml of Escherichia coli, the chloroform extract demonstrated antibacterial action. Hexane extract from Ficus glomerata with MIC (348 µg/ml) showed the lowest antibacterial activity.
