Screening of natural sources for novel antifungal compounds can help to control fungal pathogens of both humans and plants. Fungi being eukaryotic organisms present special problems in chemotherapy. There has been a renewed interest in natural antimicrobial compounds which can be used in the control of mycotoxigenic fungi.This work describes plant seed extracts (prepared by microwave assisted extraction method) with antifungal and/or antibacterial activity. Further investigation on such bioactive extracts may lead to identification of potential lead compounds with both clinical and aesthetic applications. This work will be of interest to microbiologists, phytochemists, and all those who are into investigating bioactive natural products.
