Mahdi Abdelmageed Mohammed Ali and Yasmin Hassan Elshiekh
Vangueria madagascariensis belongs to the family (Rubiaceae) is used as a herbal medicine against diabetes, gastrointestinal problems, malaria, pain, parasitic worms, and skin diseases. The aims of this study are to evaluate the phytochemical screening, antibacterial and antioxidant activities, Phytochemical screening was carried out by using three solvent (ethanol, ethyl acetate and n-hexane), two gram positive and two gram negative bacteria were tested and antioxidant properties were determined by measuring abilities to scavenge DPPH. The result of phytochemical cited that: there were present of (Cardiac glycosides, alkaloids, reducing compounds, saponins Tannin, Phenols, steroids and triterpens, flavonoids and coumarins. Antibacterial tests indicated that the ethanol, ethyl acetate and n-hexane extracts inhibited the growth of all microorganisms and most extracts showed same degree of antibacterial activity.
