Özet

It is widely accepted by scientists that innovation of new antimicrobial agents has extreme importance for the sake of the future of human beings; therefore the researches about the antimicrobial potentials of plant extracts and their biochemical composition have great importance. This present study aims to investigate the antimicrobial activity of Matthiola tricuspidata ethanol extract against several Gram-positive and Gram-negative microorganisms and Candida albicans by disk diffusion method, and to identify its chemical composition by Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry. As a result, it was observed that the extract showed activity for all microorganisms excluding Enterobacter aerogenes ATCC 13048, Escherichia coli ATCC 25922, E. coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Salmonella infantis, and Salmonella typhimurium SL1344 and some chemical compounds were detected, which may be responsible for the antimicrobial activity.
