Effect of Monosodium n-Alkylsalicylates on Spores of Bacillus subtilis

D. Buckley, J. Thomas
1972 Applied microbiology  
The effects of several monosodium n-alkylsalicylates on washed spores of Bacillus subtilis have been examined. None of the compounds was sporicidal, but in general they prevented dormancy induced by incubating the spores in water. This effect was related to the position in the ring and size of the alkyl groups substituted on the salicylic acid nucleus.
