The crude methanolic extract was suspended in water (2 L) and was extracted with n-hexane and ethyl acetate to get 105 g and 81 g fractions respectively.
The remaining methanolic residue was evaporated to dryness then suspended in water and fractionated with ethyl acetate.

Parameters controlling the growth of the selected strain in relation to mixture of ethyl acetate extract of E.hirta, EH and P.
None of the ethyl acetate, acetone, methanol, and aqueous extracts of T.
Crude extract was dissolved by aquadest (100 ml) and fractionated by liquid-liquid fractionation by n-hexane and ethyl acetate (each 100 ml x 3) respectively and both evaporated in vacuum to get n-hexane and ethyl acetate fractions.
The fractionation was continued by the addition of ethyl acetate into the water phase using a separating funnel, as much as 100 mL or in 1:1 ratio.
