Pseudomonas aeruginosa acts as an opportunistic pathogen because of its ability to survive on inert materials, its minimal nutritional requirement and its resistance to antimicrobial agents and antiseptics. The aim of the present study was to study the comparative investigation of chemical and herbal disinfectants on multidrug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa. All the Pseudomonas aeruginosa were tested against 10 different antibiotics as well as various types of disinfectants. All Pseudomonas aeruginosa (100%) strains were resistant to Cefuroxime, 80% strains were resistant to Amoxyclave, 50% each to Cephadroxil and Trimethoprim, 40% each to Azithromycin, Cefixime, Gatifloxacin and Levofloxacin, 30% each were resistant to Doxycycline hydrochloride and Sparfloxacin. It was found that all the strains (100%) were resistant to Hydrogen Peroxide and Potassium permanganate, 70% to Alcohol and 50% to Formaldehyde. Except Pine oil (70% resistant), all the strains (100%) were resistant to Cow urine, Lavender oil and Peppermint oil. Out of four herbal extracts analysed (Chitrak, Daruhaldi, Hirda and Neem), the only extract to which 100% sensitivity was observed was Hirda.
