Summary:The bactericidal effects of ozone solutions were tested against suspensions at 1°, and the lethal concentration was found to be that quantity of ozone necessary to produce a detectable residue in the suspension; under the conditions of our experiments this was 0·4–0·5 mg./l. A comparison of the bactericidal activity of chlorine under similar conditions emphasized the different modes of action of the two agents.
