To study the phytochemical profile of acetone and methanol extract of A. mexicana. The study was designed to investigate the phytochemicals potentials in A. mexicana. To evaluate the ethyl acetate and chloroform extract of A. mexicana using GC MS. In this background, the present study intended to evaluate the toxic influence, activity range and potency of A. Mexicana. This study aims to evaluate the antimicrobial potential of extract of A. Mexicana which were found abundance in and around Kanchipuram Dt., Evaluate the toxicity of the underexploited A. Mexicana in freshwater fish Ctenopharyngodon Idella. The objectives of this work is together the information on the antimicrobial properties of compounds from A.mexicana leaves, their extraction and there major applications.
Key words: A. Mexicana, GC-MS. ANTIBACTERIAL AND ICTHYOTOXICITY ACTIVITY
