Authors(2) :-Pramila Kori, Meenakshi Nagar

The leaves and roots of Caricapapaya were screened for its antimicrobial and phytochemical activities. The solvents used for the leaves and root extraction were benzene, acetone, aqueous. The extract was tested against infectious disease causing bacterial such asEscherichia coli, Pseudomonas aerginosa, staphylococcus aureus using the well diffusion method. The benzene, acetone extract of leaves of Carica papaya inhibition against all the test microbe ranging from 11mm to 13mm diameter inhibitory zone. The acetone and aqueous extract of root of Carica papaya inhibition against all the test microbe ranging from varying zone of inhibition of the growth of tested organism than benzene, acetone, aqueous, phytochemical properties of leaves and roots of Carica papaya obtain from, benzene, acetone, aqueous extract were investigated. The result confirmed that the presence of antibacterial activity and phytochemical in the shade dried extract of Carica papayaagainst the human pathogenic organisms.
