Abstract: The application of synthetic algaecides for the control of algae produces by-products that are sometimes toxic to the environment. There is a need for natural and cheap alternatives to synthetic algaecides. In the present study, we investigated the potential of aqueous crude extract of Azadirachta indica to inhibit the growth of Scenedesmus quadricauda. Phytochemical screening of the extract revealed the presence of groups of bioactive compounds that are capable of inhibiting microalgal growth. Chlorophyll a c… Show more

“…The phenolic compounds, along with nimbin, are the most prominent components of neem extract, and they have high antimicrobial properties. According to Alzohairy, 43,44 the nimbin of neem exhibits a broad range of killing efficiency against a different class of bacteria. As a result, the extract was tested for antibacterial efficacy against the E. coli E1.…”
