DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.8107255


Jute leaf is used as an herb in Middle Eastern and African countries which has large number of biomolecules that show various pharmacological activities. It has been studied for antibacterial activity by disk diffusion method where it was clear that it has antibacterial activity against all the test organisms. The boiling time has effect on antibacterial activity. In case of Minimal Inhibitory Concentrations (MIC), Minimal Bactericidal Concentrations (MBC) and phytochemical activities in jute leaf liquor, it inhibits the growth of Bacillus cereus where the MIC and MBC was 128mg and 256mg, respectively; and Cardial Glycosides phytochemical was found in all the three varieties O-72, O-9897 and CVL-1 jute leaf liquor.
