Abstract

Phytochemical screening of the ethanolic extract of Moringaoleifera and its antifungal activityon some selected fungi was investigated using the disc diffusion and broth dilution techniques. Resultsof phytochemical screening of the ethanolic extract shows the presence of alkaloids, glycoside, flavonoids, reducing sugar, saponins and tannins. Similarly, it was found that the ethanolic extract has antifungal potential on the tested fungi. The minimum inhibitory concentration for the leaf ethanolic extract was found to be 375mg/ml. therefore Moringaoleifera could be used against these fungi pending further research.

Keywords: Moringaoleifera, ethanolic extract, phytochemicals, antifungal activity.
