ABSTRACT

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the phytochemical profile and anti microbial activity of flowers extract of Ixora coccinea Linn. Anti microbial activity refers to the process of killing or inhibiting the microbes causing diseases. Antimicrobial is a drug used to treat a microbial infection. Antimicrobial is a general term that refers to a group of drugs that includes antibiotics, anti-fungals, anti-protozoals and anti-virals. Antibiotics are one of the most important weapons in fighting bacterial infections. As the micro-organisms showing resistance to antibiotics there is a need to develop new antimicrobial compound. Plants are the richest bio-resources of drugs for traditional and modern system of medicine. Santan (Ixora coccinea, Linn., Dwarf red var.,) is one of the common ornamental plant found in the Philippines and in the west coast of India. The test substance used in the chloroform extract is flowers of Ixora coccinea Linn and were tested in Eschericia coli. Ixora coccinea flowers are commonly used in the treatment of diarrhoea, leucorrhoea, dysentery, skin problems and good for fever. It acts as a astringent, anti-diarrhoeal, anti-leucorrhoea and blood purifier. In accordance with previous reports, initiated the project work to obtain anti microbial activity from Ixora coccinea flowers. Finally we are planning to study the antimicrobial activity and preliminary phytochemical studies of the selected Ixora coccinea flower.

Keywords: Ixora coccinea, Antimicrobial activity, phytochemical, astringent and Eschericia coli.
