Abstract

The present study was aimed at phytochemical screening, antioxidant and antibacterial potential of Acronychia pedunculata (L.) leaf and stem extracts. The phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of sterols, terpenoids, flavonoids, saponins, tannins, carbohydrates, resins and glycosides, while proteins were absent in all the test extracts. Among the test extracts, maximum inhibition to test pathogenic bacteria (E. coli, S. typhi, B. subtilis and S. aureus) and antioxidant activity was most prominent in leaf methanol extract when compared to all the extracts of the plant. A maximum of 16.35 mm against S. aureus and 65.97% RSA was observed at 1 mg/ ml concentration in methanol leaf extract. The findings support and promote the pharmacological application of A. pedunculata extract and demand for purification of the active principle(s).
