  • Abstract

    Extracts of Jasminum grandiflorum Linn (Oleaceae) were screened for their in vitro antibacterial activity by agar diffusion method in comparison with standard antibiotic penicillin. The antibacterial activity of petroleum ether, chloroform, acetone, methanol and aqueous extract of leaves of the plant were studied using Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa as test organism. Out of all extracts tested, petroleum ether, methanol and aqueous extracts were effective against all the four microorganisms. Chloroform extract was only effective against Bacillus subtilis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Acetone extract was most effective against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli.
