Abstract

We have not found in our work any region of ultra violet energy which will produce a stimulation of yeast growth in any synthetic medium used. In every case the action of the ultra violet radiations has produced a toxicity in the media in proportion to the amount of ultra violet received. Even fifteen minutes of ultra violet light at 16 cm. from the lamp produced such a toxicity in the medium that the yeast count twenty-four hours afterwards was ten per cent below the control count.
