Abstract : Soyabean (Glycin max) and black-eyed bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) belongs to the family of leguminosae and are grown in West Africa especially Nigeria for its edible seeds and leaves. Phytochemical screening of the leaves obtained by the cold maceration method using 95% ethanol, petroleum ether (60-80°C), and water extracts of leaves revealed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides and tannins. The growth of Salmonella typhi; Klebsiella pneumoniaae; Escherichia coli, Aspergillus funugatus, Mucor mucedo and Rhizopus stolonifer from the extracts and the growth was inhibited. Ethanol and aqueous extracts of Glycin max showed appreciable inhibitions to the growth of Mucor muced and minimum inhibitory concentration was 20% for all extracts.
Keywords : phytochemical; medicinal; legumes; bacteria; fungi; inhibition.

Reviewer Comments : 1# I have gone through the manuscript entitled “Phytochemical screening and medicinal attributes of crude extracts of soyabean (glycin max) and black-eyed bean (phaseolus vulgaris) leaves” The paper indicated the followings: abstract, introduction/overview, highlighted the problem to be solved, results and conclusion. There are no ambiguous sentences in the manuscript as the paper clearly established the medicinal attributes of the two leaves with appropriate methods. The results and conclusion reflects the work done.
Recommendation: The paper is publishable

2# The paper “Phytochemical screening and medicinal attributes of crude extracts of soyabean (glycin max) and black-eyed bean (phaseolus vulgaris) leaves” has been reviewed. The methods are standard and the literature is robust and up to date. The work as it is represents the scope of the study. The conclusions were all found to be in good agreement with the available experimental data. There are sufficiently literature citations that complement the new findings.
I recommend the manuscript for publication
