Abstract:
The antimicrobial activity of essential oil of Pentanema indicum var. sivarajanianum (L.) Ling. was investigated. GC-MS analysis of the hydrodistilled oil resulted in the identification of 21 compounds constituting 99.4% of the total oil. The major constituents are hexadecane, α-humulene, myrecene and β-thujone comprising 51.6% of the oil. The oil strongly exhibited antimicrobial activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus luteus, Micrococcus roseus, Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis.
