The antimicrobial activity of two mineral oils, avitol and salidol, in their normal state and in polymerized form was studied. The polymerization is accompanied by a few changes in the properties of these oils, such as the increase in the density, temperature of ignition, and degree of acidity. Their color and odor are also modified. All these oils show a definite bacteriostatic activity, which on polymerization increases considerably, becoming bactericidal. Author
