Moring oleifera seed oil was extracted by adding hexane to the seed powder in an electro-thermal soxhlet and evaporating the hexane to produce the 100% seed oil. Different concentrations (75%, 50%, and 25%) of the oil were prepared by aseptically dissolving the measured amount of oil into appropriate volume of Dimethyl Sulfur Oxide (DMSO) on volume by volume (v/v) basis. About 0.3 mls of the seed oil extract of the varying concentrations were added to four agar wells and to the fifth well, gentamycin was added as a positive control. The agar plates were then incubated at 350C ± 20C for 24 hours. Effect of the Moring oil extract was assessed by measuring the zones of inhibition to the nearest millimeter, and then compared with the standard gentamycin. The results showed that …..
