ABSTRACT

In developing countries herbal medicines are widely used and are in high demand for primary health care because of their inexpensiveness, traditional acceptance, and with minimum side effects so very high rate of compatibility with human body. This study was aimed to estimate the antibacterial, antifungal and phytochemical analysis of Nannorrhops ritchiana (Mazari Palm) particularly the leaves in 95% ethanol extract with different concentrations like 100, 200, 300, 400, 500 and 600mg/ml. The antibacterial and antifungal activity was determined by disc diffusion and well diffusion method against five bacterial strains; Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Bacillus cereus, Salmonella typhi and Klebsiella pneumonia; two fungal strains such as Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger were susceptible to the extract. The phytochemical characterization of Nannorrhops ritchiana showed the incidence of flavonoids, alkaloids, cardiac glycosides, glycosides, resins, saponnins, tannins, terpenoids, carbohydrates and amino acids. This is what explained the use of herbal drugs efficacy and cost effectiveness in recent years. The main scope was to study the antimicrobial analysis of Nannorrhops ritchiana leaves for pharmacological benefits.

Keywords: Nannorrhops ritchiana, plant, ethanol, phytochemical, bacteria, fungi, disease.
