Abstract

Diverse waste materials have been adopted as sources of important phytochemicals with different medicinal applications. This work focuses on the application of pomegranate waste in curative medicine. Antimicrobial activity of extracts of punica granatum was evaluated, with two strain gram-negative Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa and two strain gram-positive Staphylococcus aureus and bacillus subtilis. The in vitro antibacterial activity was performed by agar disc diffusion method. The antibacterial activity of our extracts was most striking especially on Staphylococcus aureus. The significant antibacterial activity of active extracts was compared with the standard, antimicrobial, chloramphenicol (30 μg/disc). The results obtained in the present study suggest that pomegranate can be used in treating diseases of human organism.

Keywords: Punica granatum, antibacterial activity, pomegranate waste extract
