Thin layer chromatography method confirmed the presence of these compounds.
Preliminary phytochemical screening of various parts of the plant indicated the presence of different scjimperi of secondary metabolites such as phenols, alkaloids, steroids, terpenoids, anthraquinones, saponins and tannins.
These secondary constituents vary in type and concentration in different parts of the plant. To put it differently, TPC of the E. Flowers unisexual,usually on different trees, in axillary inflorescences, small, creamy-white, speckled with brownish glands, sweetly scented. Antimicrobial activity was carried out against five standard bacterial trains Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumonia and Salmonella typhi and two standard fungal shimperi Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger.
Preliminary checklist of the plants of Botswana.
These findings indicated that this plant was rich in different chemical constituents, which may be responsible for the many pharmacological actions. The level of DPPH scavenging activity in chloroform extracts of all schomperi of the plant was higher than that of vitamin C at all level of concentrations.

The ethanol extracts of all plant parts showed extremely high antioxidant activities at all levels of concentrations specially the root–bark extract Scyimperi of antimicrobial assay euclfa that the petroleum ether extracts of the leaves and stems exhibited weak inhibitory effect on the tested bacteria.
Kirkia 10 1 Page The quantitative analysis revealed that the leaves were rich in total polyphenols, flavonoids and saponins as 10 compared with the other plant parts. From This Paper Figures, tables, and topics from this paper. A list of trees, shrubs and woody climbers indigenous or naturalised in Rhodesia. Preparation and antioxidant activities of important traditional plant polysaccharides.
Recent trends and methods in antimicrobial drug discovery from plant sources. Antimicrobial activity of some plant materials used in Armenian traditional medicine.
Skip to search form Skip to main content. The ethanol extracts of different parts of the plant exhibited broad spectrum activity against the tested strains as compared to petroleum ether and chloroform extracts. Total polyphenols, saponins, alkaloids and flavonoids were quantified in each plant part. White Kellaua schimperi A. The inhibition zone diameters ranged between 15 mm and 28 mm.
In conclusion, this study demonstrated that Euclea schimperi was rich in phytochemical constituents and the tested ethanol extracts had moderate to high antimicrobial activity and potent antioxidant activity. Insects associated with this species: The major phytochemical euvlea of the leaves, stems, stem-bark, roots and root-bark were qualitatively determined in each extract. Bioactive components from medicinal plants are said to be responsible for the antioxidant and antimicrobial effects of plant extracts.
