Investigation on Potentiality of 2h-Furo [2,3-H]-1-Benzopyran-2-One from Psoralea corylifolia L. Seeds against Gram Negative Human Bacteria

The bioactive molecule 2H-Furo[2,3-H] has antibacterial action. At concentrations of 100-1000ppm, -1-benzopyran-2-one was tested against five human bacterial species: Klebsiella pneumoniae, Vibrio cholerae, Escherichia coli, Shigella dysenteriae, and Salmonella typhi. K. pneumonia showed 32.0mm inhibition at 700mm concentration, the highest of the five bacteria examined (MIC 700ppm). At 600ppm concentration (MIC 600ppm), V. cholera showed…
