    The bioactive phytochemical constituents present in the plant play a significant role in the development of medicines and drug discovery. Rumex abyssinicus is one of the plants that grow in Ethiopia and different parts of this plant are used as a traditional medicine. The aim of this research was isolation and characterization of bioactive compounds from Rumex abyssinicus rootbark. The plant material was collected from Oromia region around Ilu Ababor Zone, Metu College of teachers’ education campus during February 2016. The dried and powdered plant material was subjected to sequential solvent extraction using maceration technique to prepare the crude extract which was directly used for antibacterial studies. The lists of solvents taken for the extraction were n-hexane, chloroform, acetone and methanol. Antibacterial evaluation of crude extracts of the plant rootbark wer.. Read More»
