Abstract

The rising prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria has long been a source of concern in the scientific community. Many experts across the world are doing plant study in order to uncover potential antibacterial chemicals. Many plants secondary compounds have been shown to exhibit a wide range of biological functions. Antibacterial, antifungal, and anticancer properties may be present. The present review shows the plants recently used for antimicrobial activity.

Keywords: Antimicrobial, woodfordia fruticosa, Betula utilis, stephania glabra, nelumbo nucifera
