Abstract


Tridax procumbens Linn. is common weed found all over the world, growing primarily during raining season. The extracts of Tridax procumbens have been reported to have various pharmacological effects like mosquito repellant activity, leishmanicidal, hepatoprotective, effect on liver antioxidant system, immune-modulatory effect, wound healing activity and antiprotozoal effects. Flavones, sterols, tannins, glycoside, luteolin, glucoluteolin, saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, campesterol, stigmasterol, amyrin, sitosterol, quercetin, polysaccharide and monosaccharide have been isolated from the plant. The aim of the present chapter was carried out to scientifically evaluate the antibacterial study of Tridax procumbens and the extracts obtained from various stages of standard phytochemical analysis. These extracts are found to have antibacterial properties.
