ABSTRACT:
The present work is aimed at investigating the phyto chemical constituents, physico chemical studies, anti microbial and anti oxidant activities of Ixora coccinea. Petroleum ether, chloroform, methanol and water are used for extraction. Cup plate method is used for assaying antimicrobial activity using both bacterial and fungal strains and phosphomolybdenum method is followed for assessing total antioxidant capacity. The extracts have shown considerable bacterial activity but not have shown antifungal activity. It has good antioxidant activity comparable to ascorbic acid.
KEYWORDS:
Ixora, phosphomolybdenum method, antimicrobial, cup plate method, phyto chemical screening.
