The aim of the current study was to screen the phytochemicals present in the various fractions of the plant using the biochemical tests and to evaluate the antibacterial and antioxidant potential of the different fractions of Monoteheca buxifolia stem using Well method and 1, 1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) free radical scavenging assay. The antibacterial activities of these fractions were checked against Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Erwinia carotovora, Salmonella typhi, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis. These results obtained revealed that this plant have good antibacterial and antioxidant potential and very important from medicinal point of view.
