Abstract

This paper presents an extraction and antimicrobial study of essential oil obtainedfrom Nigella sativa seeds. Extraction using polar solvent resulted in higher recovery ofdesired bioactive compounds, thymoquinone and thymol. It was found that extraction ofantioxidant (i.e. Agidol 7) favours aqueous solvent, i.e. 50% ethanol and 50% methanol.The highest TPC, TFC and antioxidant activities were obtained at power 224W andtemperature of 50 °C. This study shows that N. sativaseed oil has an effective antibacterialactivity from the in-vitrostudies. The result showed that the essential oil extracted using n-hexane has the highest (30.17%) effectiveness against E. coli
