Title Antimicrobial activity of Thymus sipyleus subsp. rosulans organic extract and essential oil
Authors
Abstract In this work, Thymus sipyleus subsp. rosulans wildly distributed in Turkey was screened for its antimicrobial activity. Following the crude extraction from aerial parts of Thymus sipyleus subsp. rosulans with fi ve different organic solvents and the essential oils were tested for its antimicrobial activity. For the essential oils, 39 compounds were identifi ed representing over the 98.7 % of the essential oil. The major constituents of the oil were determined as carvacrol (35.327%), cymene (19.920%), thymol (13.220%) and terpinene (8.003%). The extracts of Thymus sipyleus subsp. rosulans exerted activity on bacterial strains and Candida albicans. Essential oil’s disc diffusion and MIC values were determined for some selected standard test strains.
Keywords Thymus, essential oil, antimicrobial activity.
