The Corandia Savitam plant has been known since ancient times because of its preventive and curative benefits against diseases, as well as its various uses in flavouring foods. And likewise, because includes beneficial and desirable effects that provide bioactive antimicrobial potential. In this study, the qualitatively phytochemical screening results of the Aqueous-Ethanolic and n-hexane oily extracts indicated that tannins, phenols, saponins, cardiac glycoside, carbohydrates and terpenoids were present in very high concentrations, while phlobatannins, alkaloids, flavonoids, proteins, quinines and oxalate were present in a moderate concentration in its oily extracts. While the quantitative results of the oil extractive revealed that the value yields for each of the oil aqueous-ethanolic and n-Hexane extracts of Coriandrum Sativum seed were 56.4 and 70.6%. Consequently, the best quantity of extractive value oil crop was the oil extracted by an n-Hexane solvent which was higher than the extractive value crop of oil extracted by water-alcohol as a solvent. Whereas, for each of tannins, alkaloids, flavonoids and saponins were 43.0, 57.2, 63.4 and 74.3% respectively. However, the results of the biological activity of the bout oil extracts of the Coriander Sativum plant seed were as follows: The Aqueous-Ethanolic oil extract against each of Escherichia Coli, Salmonella typhi, Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella 15, 13, 14 and 17 mm, correspondingly, even though the n-Hexane oil extract was 16, 15, 12 and 13 mm, respectively. Thus, in compression of these results. Furthermore, when comparing these results with the effects of antibiotics.
