The use of medicinal and their photochemical compositions with known anti-microbial properties can be a great significance in therapeutics. In this research work the aqueous of leaves of ocimum Basillium was screened against E-coli. The FTIR spectrum of Ocimum Basicllicum is taken at IIT, Chennai and frequencies are assigned from the spectrum. The existence of Flavaniod lies between 2500-2900cm-1 is identified which good antimicrobial action against the diseases has caused by bacteria. The presences of other nutrients like amino acids, carbohydrates proteins lipid phosphate are identified. The antibacterial activities are compared with standard antibiotics.
