Antimicrobial activity of various parts of Euphorbia rothiana was studied using different solvent system against various gram positive, gram negative bacteria. Pharmacognostical evaluation including examinations of morphological and microscopical characterization was carried out. The phytochemical analysis reveals the presence of phenolic compound in various parts of the plant using alcoholic extract and flavonoid using aqueous extract. The antimicrobial activity of the plant may be due to the presence of phenolic and flavonoid constituents. Antimicrobial activity was compared with the standard antibiotic ampicillin.

Key words: Alcoholic extract, Ampicillin, Antimicrobial, Flavonoid, Phenolic compound.
