Pithecellobium dulce is a species of flowering plant in the pea family Fabaveae, that is native to the Pacific Coast and adjacent highlands of Maxico, Central Amerca, and northern South America. Pithecellobium dulce. It is used as medicinal plant. An extract of the leaves is used for gall ailments and to prevent miscarriage. The methanolic extract of leaves was obtained by Soxhelt extractor followed by concentration in rotary evaporator. Separation of bioactive chemicals was carried out by column chromatography while studies by GC-MS which shows presence of following bioactive chemicals Phytol, Anthracene, 9(3butenyl), mm Diisooctyl phthalate, 13Docosenamide,, 3,6,9triethyl3,6,9trimethyl Formic acid, Cyclotetrasiloxane, octamethyl, l(+) Ascorbic acid 2,6dihexadecanoate. The leaf extract of Pithecellobium dulce showed good inhibition against gram positive Organisms. The highest inhibition was noted S.epidermidis (24mm), P. acne(14mm) and s. aur(11mm).

Keywords: GC-MS, Soxhlet, Chemical Composition, Antimicrobial.
