A series of alkylated furoic acids has recently been synthesized by means of the Friedel-Crafts reaction. In a study on the germicidal action of these compounds it has been found that some of them are of relatively high germicidal efficiency. This study was carried out on a virulent strain of Staphylococcus aureus using a modified Anderson-McClintic technic.
