Biochemical Composition and Antimicrobial Activity of Some Plants in Mongolia

2010 Mongolian Journal of Biological Sciences  
The antimicrobial activities of the methanol, butanol, ethylacetate, ethanol and chloroform extracts obtained from three different plant species of the Mongolian Gobi desert are evaluated by means of the disc diffusion method against eight species of bacteria. Extracts of Ammopiptanthus mongolicus demonstrated antibacterial activity against three species of microorganisms. Only butanol extract of Incarvillea potaninii demonstrated antibacterial activity against 3-5 species of microorganisms.

All extracts of three plant species did not demonstrate antibacterial activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Aspergillus niger. In addition, we determined some biologically active substances, pH, vitamin P, raw oil, fl avonoid, alkaloid and anthraglycoside in aboveground parts of these plants.
