Abstract The aerial parts of Allium eriophyllum Var. eriophyllum (Syn. A. longisepalum Bertol.) were collected at full flowering stage.The essential oil was isolated by hydro distillation and analyzed by a combination of capillary GC and GC-MS. The main components were carvacrol (71.54%), Methyl (methylthio) methyl disulfide (9.51%), (E)-caryophyllene (8.37%) and β-bisabolene (4.38%). The in vitro antimicrobial activity of the essential oil of A. eriophyllum were studied against Staphylococcus… Expand

Mechanisms of Action of Carvacrol on the Food-Borne Pathogen Bacillus cereus
It could be concluded that carvacrol interacts with the membranes of B. cereus by changing its permeability for cations like H+ and K+ which leads to impairment of essential processes in the cell and finally to cell death. Expand
