Evaluation of antimicrobial activities of volatiles produced during rapid volatilization of oils
Keywords and Phrases
"A petroleum middle distillate known as the Fog oil (FO) has been used in the US military battle field to create obscurant smoke screens. During a study on the feasibility of replacing petroleum derived FO with vegetable oil derived esters like the methyl soyate (MS) it was observed that FO and MS aerosols and vapors did not exhibit detectable mutagenic activity but were lethal to Ames strains bacteria even after very short exposure periods. The research presented in this thesis was undertaken to assess antimicrobial properties of vapors generated from vegetable oil esters and petroleum oils such as the JP-8, Diesel-2 and mineral oil"--Abstract, leaf iii.
