Abstract

The antifungal potential of Lansium domesticum leaf and fruit peel crude extract was tested against Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger. The extractions of Lansium domesticum leaf and fruit peel were performed using ethanolic extraction. Different concentrations were prepared by diluting the extract with sterile distilled water to provide 100%, 75%, 50%, 40%, 25% and 10% concentrations. The antifungal potential of these concentrations were tested against Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger using the Disk Diffusion Method (Kirby-Bauer). Results showed that Lansium domesticum leaf and fruit peel crude extract did not have any antifungal effect on both Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger due to the absence of “clearing” around the disk impregnated with different concentrations. The test isolates used are resistant to the phytochemical components of Lansium domesticum leaf and fruit peel crude extract.
