dc.description.abstract The tubers of Chlorophytum arundinaceum Baker of Liliaceae family is a traditionally used medicinal plant with ethnic and/or folk claims like immunomodulatory, antidiabetic, anti-arthritic, aphrodisiac, etc. The in vitro antimicrobial activity of its root extract was evaluated against six bacterial species (Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Shigella sonnei and Staphylococcus aureus) and four fungal species (Aspergillus fumigatus, A. niger, Candida albicans and Trichophyton rubrum). The root extracts in solvents like petroleum ether/benzene, ethyl acetate, hydro-alcohol, methanol and chloroform showed moderate microbial activity whereas the aqueous root extract evinced no antimicrobial activity. None of the solvent extracts tested showed any activity against B. subtilis. The methanolic extract has shown maximum antibacterial as well as antifungal activity of the five solvent systems tried except A. fumigatus. en_US
