Abstract

Medicinal plants are having various phytochemicals which show diverse bioactivity. In this study, various medicinal plants were collected and analyzed for their bioactivity and also screened for their phytochemical constituents. TLC-bioautography for antioxidant activity confirmed the presence of antioxidant molecule in Aegle marmelos, P. murex and H.enneasperms. Aegle marmelos and other plants too showed antibacterial activity. Antibacterial activity was confirmed by SEM analysis
