Abstract

The antimicrobial properties of lichen Parmotrema nilgherrense was evaluated by using different solvents viz. acetone, methanol, ethyl acetate and Benzene against 6 drug resistant bacterial strains viz., Klebsiella pneumoniae, Salmonella typhi, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus valgaris, Shigella flexneri and  Pseudomonas fluorescens. The present study confirms that ethyl acetate extract exhibit maximum antibacterial activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa (100℅), Pseudomonas fluorescens (100℅), Proteus vulgaris (100℅), Shegilla flexneri (100℅), Klebsiella  pneumoniae (100℅) and Salmonella typhi (70%) and methanol extract exhibited minimum activity against Salmonella typhi (46℅). The MIC of the ethyl acetate extract of lichen was found to be 0.78125×10-7 µL against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, while 3.125×10-5 µL against Pseudomonas fluorescens and Proteus vulgaris. The MIC of Shegilla flexneri was found to be 6.25×10-4 µLand the MIC of Klebsiella pneumoniae was found to be 12.5× 0-3 µL.
