Extracts of leaves, flower and bark of Butea monosperma belonging to the family: Fabaceae were prepared and subjected to preliminary antibacterial evaluation. The methanolic extracts obtained by soxhlation method were found to possess better activity compared to the aqueous extracts prepared by refluxation method. The extracts were found to contain significant amounts of phenols, flavonoids and tannins, which are known for their antibacterial properties. The antibacterial activity of extracts was determined against Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus, Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhi using agar diffusion and MIC determination methods. The extracts were found to be active at a concentration of 1mg/ml. The results indicated that extracts of Butea monosperma possess good antibacterial property.
