The authors report on the isolation,characterization and antimicrobial potency of a dihydroflavonol isolated from the leaves of Sudanese Tamarix nilotica. The isolate was purified by different chromatographic techniques and identified via a combination of spectral tools( IR, UV, 1HNMR and Mass spectroscopy). The isolated flavonoid , ethyl acetate and n-butanol fractions were evaluated(in vitro) for their antimicrobial potential against Gram negative (Escherichia coli, Salomonella typhi ) and Gram positive (Bacillus subtilis , Staphylococcus aureus) bacteria and the fungi :Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger and promising results were obtained.The isolated dihydroflavonol seems to be a suitable candidate for future optimization.
