Abstract

In vitro evaluation of bioactive compounds is the simplest and effective method for evaluating the antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of compound. In this study, the leaves of Ficus racemosa were extracted with chloroform. The qualitative phytochemical screening was done for the extracted sample. The extract was checked for its antioxidant and antibacterial activity using the TLC bioautography assay. The well diffusion method was carried out to study about the antibacterial activity of the plant sample against three different bacterial cultures. The chloroform extract of Ficus racemosa was showing least antioxidant and antibacterial activity.
