Antibacterial activity of ethanolic, distilled water and methanol extract of the leaves of Dalbergia Sisso (Roxb.) were studied against Escherichia coli and Bacillus licheniformis by agar well diffusion method. Results obtained showed that the growth of both E.coli and B.licheniformis were inhibited by all the three extracts of dried Leaf Extracts of Dalbergia Sisso (Roxb.). The antibacterial activity of these extracts against selected bacterial stains depends on the type of solvent used for extraction. The present study revealed that Leaf Extracts of Dalbergia Sisso (Roxb.) can be exploited for new potent antibacterial agents.
