Abstract: This study was planned to identify and quantify the lipid composition of Sudanese Peganum harmala (L.) seeds and to evaluate the potential antimicrobial activity of the extracted fixed oil . GC- MS analysis of the fixed oil revealed the presence of : 9,12– octadecadienoic acid (49.76%),9-octadecenoic acid (19.30%) , hexadecanoic acid(10.86%), , methyl stearate(6.37%) beside other minor constituents. In cup plate agar diffusion assay, the oil was screened for antimicrobial activity against six standard human pathogens and promising results were obtained.Keywords: Peganum harmala , Fixed oil , GC-MS , Antimicrobial Activity.
