[Studies to investigate the ecological importance of the mass development of Hydrodictyon reticulatum in infiltration basins for drinking water. III. Identification of the active components by the use of spectroscopic methods and gas chromatography (author's transl)].

Antibacterial substances from H. reticulatum, that was harvested from its natural habitat or grown under culture conditions, could be isolated by extraction with ethanol or by steam destillation from cells as well as from culture filtrate. The active substances were tested by gas chromatography, infrared spectroscopy and mass spectrometry and characterized… CONTINUE READING
