Three laboratories collaborated in evaluating the fungicidal potency of an anti-icing additive for jet fuel. The material is more than 99 2-methoxyethanol. The assay procedure was standardized by mutual agreement among the participants the assay organism was Cladosporium resinae, the most common fungal contaminant of jet fuel. The results are in fairly good accord, and though the test was not intended to represent field conditions of use, the data indicate that the additive is lethal to the fungus at concentrations easily attainable in the various water bottoms of fuel-handling systems.
