In vitro, antifungal bioassay of Rhizophora mucronata Poir was performed.Bark extract was prepared in DMSO, DW, chloroform, ethanol, acetone and 2000,4000 and 6000 ppm of the extracts were tested against seven allergenic fungi viz.,Alternaria alternata, Aspergillus flavus, A. fumigatus, A. niger Cladosporiumherbarum Penicillium notatum and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Data was comparedwith negative control against different aforesaid solvents, most of the results werefound as significant (P.05). The inhibition in the growth of A. niger was greaterfollowed by A, Alternata, and A. flavus except in the case of S. cerevisiae, where,the growth inhibition was comparatively ineffective. Overall concentrationdependent increase in the growth inhibition of fungi was observed during thestudy. Results are discussed in relation to antifungal potential of Rhizophoramucronata stem.
