Pharmacological potential of Ipomeapes-caprae(L.) R. Br. whole plant extracts

The present study was conducted to investigate phytochemical screening, antibacterial activity, MIC and MBC values and antioxidant activities of different solvent extracts viz., Hexane, Benzene, Chloroform, Ethyl acetate, Acetone and Methanol extracts of Ipomoea pes-caprae whole plant. Phytochemical screening was carried by using standard protocols, antibacterial activity was carried out by using Agar well diffusion method, MIC and MBC by broth dilution method and antioxidant activity was determined by DPPH free radical scavenging assay. The results exhibited the occurence of diffrent phytochemicals, showed significant antibacterial zone of inhibitions. MIC values ranged from 12.5 mg/ml to 75mg/ml and MBC values from 25 mg/ml to 100 mg/ml. The plant showed good antioxidant activity with Acetone extract (90.89%) and Ethyl acetate extract (77.73%). On the whole, this plant was found to be very important as a source for bioactive principle and natural antioxidants.
