Abstract

Methanol and acetone extracts from leaf and root of Cardiospermum halicacabum Linn were investigated for in-vitro anti-bacterial property by agar disc diffusion method. The crude extracts in acetone and methanol of Cardiospermum halicacabum Linn root exhibited good anti-microbial activity against the Salmonella typhi and Proteusm irabilis. Leaf extract in methanol exhibited good anti-microbial activity against the Proteusm irabilis. Leaf extract in acetone exhibited moderate inhibition activity against the Staphylococcus aureus.

Keywords: Anti-microbial activities, Cardiospermum halicacabum Linn, acetone, methanol
