Abstract

WORK conducted in 1945 in the research laboratories of the Admiralty, but not then published, suggested that partially purified penicillin (calcium) from surface culture was more stable than the crystalline material. In addition, it was not found that phosphate, when included in penicillin solutions, produced any definite increase in the stability of the antibiotic.
