COMPARATIVE PHYTOCHEMICAL STUDY OF TOTAL COMPOUNDOF GLYCYRHIZA GLABRA (YASTHIMADHU) AND TINOSPORACORDIFOLIA (GILOY) AND THEIR ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITYDhiman Chandra Paul, Sahil Afridi, SurjyaLoying, Devabrata Saikia, Minakshi Bhattacharjee,Prasenjit Bhagawati, Manash Pratim Kashyap and Deep Prakash Parasar
The study was carried out to identify the phytochemicals present in total compound of the medicinal plantsGlycyrhiza glabra (Yasthimadhu) and Tinospora cordifolia (Giloy). The antimicrobial sensitivity of the totalcompound was checked against Gram Negative Bacteria (Escherichia coli) and Gram Positive Bacteria(Staphylococcus aureus). Water and solvent extract of both the samples were tested for different Phytochemical test. In case of solvent extract of total compound of both samples S1 and S2, sample1 (Glycyrrhiza glabra)showed the better antimicrobial activity result then sample2 (Tinospora cordifolia) against both microorganismStaphyllococcusaureas (gram +ve) and Escherichia coli (gram âve). Where was in case of water extract of totalcompound of both sample S1 and S2, S1 and S2 showed the almost same antimicrobial activity againstStaphyllococcusaureas (gram +ve) but against Escherichia coli (gram âve) sample2 (Tinospora cordifolia) showedthe better antimicrobial activity then sample1 (Glycyrrhiza glabra).
