Journal of Pharmaceutical Research International,
Aim: The objective of this study is to determine the phytochemical constituent and antibacterial effect of fruit extract of Datura metel against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli.
Methods: The extract of the sample underwent a phytochemical screening to identify the secondary metabolites present. Also, an antibacterial test was carried out to test its effectiveness, it was tested by impregnating the respective disc on Mueller-Hilton agar streaked with Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli.
Results: Datura metel fruit extract was observed to have a good antibacterial activity on the two bacteria and this was due to the presence of the phytochemical compounds terpenoids, saponin, alkaloids, steroid, flavonoids, and tannins.
Conclusion: The sample Datura metel fruit extract could be used in the field of pharmaceutical because of its antimicrobial activity and present secondary metabolites.
