Abstract

The antimicrobial activity of eugenol and the non-polar extract from cloves (Syzygium aromaticum), was tested against the Staphylococcus aureus strain resistant to cefotaxime, Escherichia coli and Candida albicans using the disc diffusion antibiotic sensitivity technique. Soxhlet extraction was performed to separate the essential oil and GCMS method was used to identify the eugenol which is the main component of the clove essential oil. The measured growth inhibition zones showed significant activity against the 3 microbes. To conclude, eugenol is the major active ingredient of the clove essential oil extract.
