Abstract: Piper betle Linn. (Paan) belongs to family Piperaceae. It predominantly found in India, Srilanka, Thailand, and Southeast Asian countries. It’s leaf contain phytochemical Which tested in Ethyl acetate (EA), acetone, methanol and petroleum ether extract of leaf with having related antimicrobial activity for medicinal use. Except Petroleum ether extract carbohydrate test were positive. Ethyl Acetate extracts for proteins, acetone extract for Anthroquinone Glycosides, Ethyl Acetate and Acetone extracts for Saponins,EA extract for Flavanoids were positive. Tannins, Phenolic Compounds, Amino Acid and Alkaloids were positive except Petroleum Ether extract. The antimicrobial susceptibility tested by well and disc diffusion method for pathogenic bacteria as Pseudomonas vesicularis, Streptococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli etc. Escherichia coli showed the strong resistance to extract of the Petroleum Ether, Methanol and Ethyl acetate. Methanol extract showed maximum inhibition against all the bacteria. Study proved that the extract of leaf useful against infectious diseases.
