Sesbania grandiflora Linn belonging to family Leguminosae is a well-recognized medicinal plant in numerous countries like India, Srilanka and Southeast Asia. The present study examines the phytochemical constituents and antibacterial activity of leaves of Sesbania grandiflora. The quantitative examination of numerous phytochemicals was analyzed in different solvent systems. Antibacterial activities of leaves of Sesbania grandiflora was analyzed through well diffusion technique. Current outcome shows the rich amount of phytochemical constituents present in the leaves. Among the three extracts ethanol showed the maximum activity against Staphylococci sp compared to gram negative bacteria. Minimum inhibitory concentration the least value of the range between 320mm to488mm indicated the high activity. Maximum activity recorded against Staphylococci sp for ethanol leaf extract was 316mm. This proved that Sesbania grandiflora leaves exhibit the highest activity.

Keywords: Sesbania grandiflora, Phytochemicals, Antibacterial activity, Minimum inhibitory concentration   (MIC).
