Abstract

DURING our studies on microbiological problems in the citrus industry, we found it necessary to study the effect of essential oils on micro-organisms. As a first step in this study, we investigated in a synthetic medium the influence of d-limonene, which constitutes more than 90 per cent of the orange essential oil, on micro-organisms normally present on the surface of oranges.
