PRELIMINARY PHYTOCHEMICAL AND ANTIMICROBIAL SCREENING OF FLOWER OF MANGIFERA INDICA (OPIORO MANGO)
Phytochemical and antimicrobial screening analysis of Mangifera indica indicated that the presence of the following moisture content 12.33% +0.0556%, Alkaloid 7.35% +0.0291%, Tannins 18.22% +0.0070%, Saponic Glycoside 3.82% +0.0264%, FlanonoidÂ 6.11% +0.0158%, Phenolic glycoside 0.010% + 0.0012%, Terpenoids 5.71% + 0.01%, Antrachionic 10.59% + 0.0158%, pH 3.84% + 0.0529%. Cardiac Glycoside 7.90% + 0.0234%. Extracts of Mangifera indica were investigated for its antifungal and antibacterial activities. The aqueous extract did not inhibit any of the test fungi, the ethanolic extract produced zones of inhibition against Staphylococcus aureus, S. pyogens, Escherichia coli, Bacilus subfilis, while C. albican and a. flavus were not inhibited.
