Abstract:
In this study, antimicrobial effects of seed extract of coriander (Coriandrum sativum) on some microorganisms including pathogens were investigated. For this purpose extract of cardamom seed which is prepared in diethyl ether were tested on bacterial and fungal cultures such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Mycobacterium smegmatis, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhimurium, Enterococcus faecalis, Micrococcus luteus and Candida albicans by the paper disc agar diffusion method. According to findings, it is determined that inhibitory activity was detected on M. smegmatis, K. pneumoniae, S. aureus, E. coli, E. faecalis, M. luteus and C. albicans where no such activity was detected on P. aeruginosa. While S. aureus was detected to be the most sensitive strain, the least inhibitory effect was found on E. coli.
