Phytochemical Investigation and Antibacterial Activity of Bergenia ligulata
Keywords:Bergenia ligulata, Antibacterial, Bergenin, 11-O-p-hydroxybenzoylbergenin, 6-O-galloylarbutin, Epiafzelechin
In the course of screening of plant extracts for antimicrobial activity, the methanolic extract of Bergenia ligulata (Saxifragaceae) exhibited antibacterial activity against gram-positive bacteria. Fractionation of ethylacetate soluble phase of the methanol extract led to the isolation of bergenin (1), 11-O-p-hydroxybenzoylbergenin (2), 6-O-galloylarbutin (3) and epiafzelechin (4). Except bergenin, other compounds were isolated for the first time from B. ligulata.
