Phytochemicals are known to be biologically active and they are formed to contain various biomolecules effective against many diseases and disorders. Access the full text: Anthelminthic activity of Murraya koenigii was also detected in the different solvent extracts of leaves. The phytochemical compounds were qualitatively analysed and the antimicrobial activity of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus showed maximum zone of inhibition in acetone extract, whereas Klebsiella pneumonia showed maximum zone of inhibition in aqueous extract.
