SCREENING AND ISOLATION OF POTENTIAL ANTIBACTERIAL COMPOUNDS FROM DRIED LEAVES OF ACONOGONUM TORTUOSUM
Keywords:Bioactive compounds, Polygonaceae, Phytochemicals
Medicinal plants are of great importance to the health of individuals and communities. The most important of these bioactive constituents of plants are alkaloids, tannins, flavonoid and phenolic compounds. Polygonaceae are well defined and have long been universally recognized. Brandbyge followed earlier systems of plant classification in dividing polygonaceae in two sub-families that are Eriogonoideae and polygonoideae. Most polygonaceae are perennial herbaceous plant with swollen nodes trees, shrubs and Vines are also present. Extractions of plant parts for phytochemicals are carried out by Predrag et al (2005) with slight modification.
