3-Phenylpropan-1-ol, 2-phenylethanol, and benzyl alcohol were investigated for their inhibitory action against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. 3-Phenylpropan-1-ol was the most effective and benzyl alcohol was the least effective as shown by: (a) growth rate studies using subinhibitory concentrations of the alcohols, (b) determination of minimum inhibitory concentrations, and (c) determination of sterilization times. The three compounds enhance the bactericidal action of benzalkonium chloride against P… Expand
Enhancement of benzalkonium chloride and chlorhexidine acetate activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa by aromatic alcohols.
The actions of benzalkonium chloride and chlorhexidine acetate in combination with benzyl alcohol, 2-phenylethanol, or 3-phenylpropanol were evaluated at subinhibitory concentrations by measuring theExpand
Antipseudomonal effect of polymyxin and phenylethanol.
TLDR
It is suggested that there is no cross-resistance between polymyxin and either benzalkonium chloride or chlorhexidine acetate. Expand

The partition coefficients of the homologous series of aromatic alcohols were determined in an n‐heptane/water system. The minimum inhibitory concentrations of benzyl alcohol, 2‐phenylethanol,Expand

Investigation of the antibacterial activity of p-aminobenzoic acid against P. aeruginosa and E. cloacae
Abstract p -Aminobenzoic acid was found to have a bactericidal action against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Enterobacter cloacae . This action was not the result of a reduction in pH. An open porinExpand
ATTEMPTED MEASUREMENT OF THE ACTIVITY OF SELECTED PRESERVATIVE COMBINATIONS
TLDR
The usefulness of preservative combinations with regard to an improved rate of kill is demonstrated, and the use of combinations can, with wise selection, broaden the spectrum of antimicrobial activity. Expand
Antibacterial activity of phenethyl alcohol and resulting membrane alterations.
TLDR
Despite the correlation between alterations in the structural integrity of the cytoplasmic membrane in Gram-negative cells and the loss of cell viability, it cannot be inferred that membrane damage is the only cause of the lethal effect. Expand
Enhancement of antibacterial activity by p-aminobenzoic acid and sulphadiazine
Abstract Subinhibitory concentrations of combinations of the sulphonamide antagonist p -aminobenzoic acid with either carbenicillin, dibromopropamidine isethionate, or polymyxin B were shown to haveExpand
Pseudomonas cepacia resistance to antibacterials.
TLDR
P. cepacia had a markedly different resistance pattern to single and combined antibacterials from that characteristic of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which has relevance to hospital disinfection and preservation of pharmaceutical solutions. Expand
Enhancement of lincomycin activity against E. coli by alcohols
TLDR
The results indicate that these agents act by uniformly slowing the growth rates of all cells in cultures as reported for the action of phenol, chloramphenicol and tetracycline against E. coli. Expand

TLDR
The effects of benzyl alcohol and phenethyl alcohol on the rate of mass increase in cultures of E. coli were studied by absorbance measurements and the inhibition of growth was shown to be reversible and to result from a uniform inhibition of the individual cells. Expand
Cross-resistance in Pseudomonas aeruginosa resistant to phenylethanol.
TLDR
The resistant cultures grown in the presence of phenylethanol were more sensitive to benzalkonium, chlorhexidine, and phenylmercuric nitrate than phenylthanol-sensitive cells grown in nutrient broth. Expand
Preservation of fluorescein solutions against contamination with Pseudomonas aeruginosa
A combination of phenylmercuric nitrate and phenylethyl alcohol was more effective in preserving fluorescein solutions against contamination with P. aeruginosa than phenylmercuric nitrate alone. P.Expand
Preservation of sodium bicarbonate eye lotion BPC against contamination with Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
TLDR
It has been suggested that a sterilizing time of I hour or less is what should be expected of an antibacterial substance considered suitable for the preservation of ophthalmic solutions, and 2-phenylethanol (PEA) is a more effective preservative system for fluorescein sodium eye drops than the official BPC formulation, which is preserved with PMN alone.

THE UNITED STATES PHARMACOPEIA.
TLDR
The Pharmacopeia was called into being by physicians in 1820, and in 1850 pharmacists were admitted to the convention; since then physicians have gradually relinquished control to pharmacists, and to-day the authors are confronted with an anomalous condition. Expand
