Abstract

Abstract The antimicrobial properties of the methanol extract of Uvaria chamae stembark (ME) were investigated. The more active ethylacetate-soluble fraction (EAS) was separated by PTLC into 18 sub-fractions. Following phytochemical and antimicrobial screening, several sub-fractions, testing positive for the presence of glycosides (8, 11–15) and tannins (18), exhibited activity against a number of microorganisms, being in some cases more active than penicillin G and chloramphenicol.
