Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the antioxidant effects of phytotherapeutic plants on bacterial groups to which we apply gamma radiation at different doses. By this way, the effects of antioxidant etanolic extracts of plants and the effect of gamma radiation on Escherichia coli spp (abbreviated as E. coli) were investigated.


Methods: In this study, E. coli spp in the areas of agar and agar + plant extracts (83 μl) was irradiationed by increasing gamma radiation (100, 200, 500, 1000, 3000 and 6000 cGy). In this study, six plants (carob (Ceratonia siliqua L.), basil (Ocimum basilicum L.), ginger (Zingiber officinale), rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L.), yarrow (Achillea millefolium L.) and cumin (Cuminum cyminum L.) ) consumed by people and their fitoterapic effects was investigated.


Results: In this study, a decrease in the number of colony of E. coli spp was demonstrated due to the increasing gamma radiation dose. It has been assumed that the ethyl alcohol components of phytotherapeutic plants can not be assessed but are distributed and clustered on the petri dish and plant extracts may show antioxidant effects.


Conclusion: It is understood that some phytotherapeutic plants used in gamma radiation applications may show a protective effect.
