Abstract
Different solvent extracts of Alestonia scholaris were examined using the agar diffusion method for their antibacterial efficacy against Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumonia, and Staphylococcus aureus. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of each organism was determined using individual plant extracts. The entire Alestonia scholaris plant was examined using a number of solvent extracts for qualitative phytochemical analysis. Staphylococcus aureus (MIC: 121 µg/ml) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (MIC: 139 µg/ml) were both extremely susceptible to Alestonia scholaris ethanol extract's have antibacterial effects. The ethanol extract of Alestonia scholaris against Escherichia coli (164 µg/ml) and Klebsiella pneumonia (259 µg/ml) were each showed antibacterial properties. The chloroform extract of Alestonia scholaris with (MIC: 407 µg/ml) exhibited the lowest antibacterial activity.
