Gas-liquid chromatography (g.l.c.) was investigated as a potential tool in the classification and identification of Cornyebacterium strains isolated from human skin, on the basis of the g.l.c. profile of the trimethylsilyl derivatives of their mycolic acid methyl esters. The g.l.c. patterns of five skin corynebacteria were compared with those of reference… CONTINUE READING
