This study examines the antifungal properties of an ethanolic extracts and silver nanoparticles obtained from leaf, stem and blossom of an Ixora coccinea plants that grow spontaneously in the Nashik, Maharashtra and several other regions in India. The properties of these plants in controlling fungal species that belongs to Malassezia furfur were evaluated in an in vitro measure and diffusion Methods. Fresh parts of leaf, stem and blossom of plant species were collected for the preparation of ethanolic extracts and to synthesize silver nanoparticle. The results of this study revealed that the Silver nanoparticles are more effective for the Malassezia furfur growth inhibition as compared with the ethanolic plant extract. In particular, leaf and blossom region of this plant is more effective as compared to stem against Malassezia furfur, The phytochemical characterization of the ethanolic extracts has revealed that the presence of some chemical compounds such as flavonoids, tannins, Coumarin, Anthocyanin, Terpenoid, Alkaloid, Phenol, Saponin, Anthraquinone and Amino acid is likely to be responsible for the antifungal activities. The antifungal properties of this make these plants of potential interest for the control of fungi affecting the human body parts and other ecosystems.
