Abstract:

The results of the chemical detection showed that the active groups in the fruit extracts of the tannin plant contained glycosides, saponins, flavonoids, tannins, terpenes and phenols.
A number of aqueous, alcoholic and acetone fruit extracts of Tannins were prepared, and their effect on inhibition of Candida albicans was tested, which were used in four concentrations 10, 20, 30, 40 (mg / ml). The effect of these extracts on yeast varied in terms of concentration and type of extract., in which the relationship in yeast inhibition showed a direct relationship, that is, with increasing concentrations, the rate of inhibition diameter increased.
The results showed that the acetone extract showed very high effectiveness and came first in inhibiting C. albicans, as the average diameter of inhibition was 15.5 and 20 mm at a concentration of 10 and 20 mg / ml, respectively, while it increased to reach 24.5 and 28 mm at a concentration 30 and 40 mg/ml, respectively.
As for the alcoholic extract, it came in the second place, which showed good activity against C. albicans, compared to the antibiotic and the acetone and aqueous extract, as the average diameter of inhibition was 4.5 and 5.66 mm at a concentration of 10 and 20 mg / ml, respectively, while it increased to 6.16 and 8.5 mm at the concentration of 30 and 40 mg / ml, respectively, while the effect of the aqueous extract came in the last place, which showed moderate effectiveness against yeast, as the average diameter of inhibition was 2 and 3.5 mm at the concentration of 10 and 20 mg / ml, respectively, while It increased to reach 4.5 and 6.66 mm at concentrations of 30 and 40 mg/ml, respectively.
