Keywords: Coriandrum sativum | Pseudomonas aeruginosa | Staphylococcus aureus | Aspergillus niger and Candida albicans

To investigate the antimicrobial activity of Ethanol, Methanol, Acetone, Chloroform, Hexaneand Petroleum ether extract of Coriandrum sativum was tested against infectious disease causingbacterial pathogens such as such as E.Coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus andKlebsiella Pneumonia fungus like Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans, Candida kefyr and Candidatropicalis using the Agar Well diffusion method. The Methanol extract of Coriandrum sativum showedmore activity against Staphylococcus aureus zone of diameter 12.17±0.29 and Klebsiella pneumoniazone of diameter 12.17±0.15 and the Methanol extract of Coriandrum sativum showed more activityagainst Candida albicans zone of diameter 14.20±0.20 and Aspergillus niger of diameter 10.10±0.10 ,when compared to other solvent extracts . In the present study, both in bacteria and fungi methanolextract showed a varying degree of inhibition to the growth of tested organism than Ethanol, Acetone,Chloroform, Hexane and Petroleum ether. The results confirmed that presence of antibacterial andantifungal activity in the sundried extract of Coriandrum sativum against the human pathogenicorganisms. The Methanolic extract of sun dried Coriandrum sativum showed better activity against themost tested organisms.
