Synthetic water soluble form of sodium copper salt of chlorophyll is Chlorophyll in. Antibacterial efficiency of Cholorophyllin from Mimosa pudica was tested against Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, proteus vulgaris, Klebsiella pneomoniae, Bacillus subtilis, and pseudomonas arogenosa. Agar well diffusion method was used to determine the Antibacterial activity and minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC). Sodium copper chlorophyll in from Mimosa pudica shows significant antibacterial activity against all tested micro organisms. Similarly standard sodium copper chlorophyll in also exhibited significant activity. The minimum zone of inhibition and comparatively greater inhibitory concentration were determined in Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and showed significant activity in other tested organisms. The Spectrum of activity observed in the present study may be the leaf extracts of sodium copper chlorophyll in from Mimosa pudica could be a possible source to obtain new and effective herbal medicines to treat infectious diseases.
