The search for more effective antimicrobial agents among materials of plant origin with the aim of discovering potentially useful active ingredients that can serve as source and template for the synthesis of new antimicrobial drugs is the goal of this research. Extracts from the stem barks of Borerria verticillata were screened for their antimicrobial activities. Solvents used included hexane, chloroform, ethyl acetate, methanol and aqueous solvents. The BVR plant parts were air dried and powdered before being soaked in solvents for 3 days.
