Murayya koenigii leaf was extracted by using two solvents- chloroform and ethyl alcohol. Determined the number of chief different components present in extracts of curry leaf by thin layer chromatography. The phytochemical screening revealed the presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, Phenolic compounds, that the alcohol extract and tannins, quinines, alkaloids, carbohydrates in the chloroform extract. The in vitro antimicrobial activities of both extracts were examined against Staphylococcus aureus (S.a), Escherichia coli (E.c), Pseudomonas Sp (P.Sp), Streptococcus pyogens (S.p), Staphylococcus aureus (S.au) and Candida albicans. Two extracts exhibited activities against bacterial and fungal stains tested. Results were favorably compared with standard antibiotics.
