Abstract

Lecaniodiscus cupanioides is a plant of the family Sapindadaceae and the genus lecaniodiscus. It is a tree of 9 meters high with strong woody branches with flowers in fascicles in axillary cluster of purplish green color and perfumed with slender petioles. The species is present in tropical Africa from Sierra Leone to Sudan also in Angola to the South of the Democratic Republic of Congo and in Uganda. The species knows multiple uses in traditional medicine. In the form of inhalation, the bark is used to treat headaches, sinusitis, otitis, eye and ear problems. The leaves are reputed to be antibacterial and rubefacient. They are applied on boils, bruises, but are likely to cause burns if left on too long. It is to have scientific evidence of the use of these leaves that we wanted to study the phytochemistry and the anti microbial activity of the fractions of the hydro ethanolic extract of the dried leaves of the plant used in traditional medicine.

Keywords: Lecaniodiscus cupanioides Polyphenol Minimum Bactericidal Concentration Minimum Inhibitory Concentration.
