In the present study, Coccinea cordifolia root and Crateva magna bark were extracted with various solvents according to their increasing order of polarity and the extracts were subjected to preliminary phytochemical investigation. Depending on the phytochemicals present methanolic extract of Coccinea cordifolia and chloroform extract of Crateva magna were selected for the antimicrobial study. Both the extract has shown good antimicrobial potential against the microorganisms S. aureus, E. coli, K. pneumoniae, S. typhi sp., V. cholera, P. aeruginosa, B. subtilis and S. faecalis used in the study, when compared with the standard drug Lincomycin. Hence, from the present investigation it can be concluded that potential antimicrobial agents can be further isolated from both the plants for reproducible results.
