Antimicrobial Activity of Extracts from Korean Medicinal Plants and Various Plants .
This study was carried out in order to determine the biological activities such as antimicrobial activities in forty-five species of Korean plants including Korean medicinal plants. Antimicrobial activities were determined by paper disc method and minimum inhibitory concentration of ethanol extracts from the medicinal plants against spoilage bacterias. Among the tested plant extracts, Taraxacum officinale, Taraxacum koreae, Camellia japonica, Cornus officinalis, Rumex acetosa, Maximowiczia chinensis and Saxifraga stolonifera extracts showed strong antimicrobial activity. The ethanol extract of Magnolia-Vine (Maximowiczia chinensis) showed the strongest antimicrobial activity. Determination of minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) of the selected eight plant extracts showed that Taraxacum officinale and Maximowiczia chinensis extracts (MIC= 46~75 ㎍/ml) has potential as a source of natural antimicrobial agents.
