Extracts of Cyperus rotundus Linn were investigated for antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus (NCIM 2079), Escherichia coli (NCIM 2065), Bacillus Subtilis (NCIM 2063), Pseudomonas aeruginosna (NC1M 2036), and Proteus vulgaris (NCIM 2027) at 50 μg/disc using disc diffusion method. The acetone and ethanol extracts showed significant broad spectrum antibacterial activity. Our findings confirm the traditional therapeutic claims for this herb that it is useful against bacterial infection.
