Abstract: In vitro antimicrobial efficacy of root extracts of Murraya koenigii (Linn.) Spreng. was assessed by disc diffusion method against four bacterial strains (Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella typhi) and three fungal strains (Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans and Trichophyton rubrum). Minimum inhibitory concentration was also determined. The most susceptible bacterial and fungal strains were S. aureus and T. rubrum, respectively. The root extracts in organic solvents (hexane, methanol and chloroform) showed good antimicrobial activity. However, aqueous extracts could not exhibit any activity. Results of the present investigation indicate that root of M. koenigii possess antimicrobial properties and hence can be exploited for future natural plant based antimicrobial agents.
