phyto-Composition and Antimicrobial Activites of Ethnol Seed Extracts of Buchholzia coricacea.

There is a growing awarness in correlating phytochemical compounds with their biological activities. This research was aimed at investigating the phyto-composition and antimicrobial activities of Buchholzia coricacea  ethanol seed extracts. Phyto-composition of Buchholzia coricacea seed were determined using gaschromatography mass spectroscopy (GCMS) technique. Clinical Isolates; Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa,Klebsiella pneumonia, Streptocuccus faecalis and Candida albicans were used to test for the antimicrobial activities of Bulcchozia coricacea seeds following disc diffussion and broth dilution methods. Gas chromatogram reveal six peaks depicting different phyto-constitutents with oleic acid (75.57 %) highest peak. Candida albican, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Klebsiella Pneumonia and Staphylococcus aureus had the same minimium inhibitory concentration (MIC) value of 6.25 mg/ml and minimiun bactericidal concentration (MBC) value of 12.5 mg/ml. Findings from this study supports the claim of local people who use B. coricacae seeds for the management of infectious diseases.
