Abstract

Summary: We have examined by a uniform technique the sensitivity of twentyfive viruses to ethyl ether. Evidence of the sensitivity of ten other viruses is available from the literature. Viruses seem to be either very sensitive or highly resistant. Of the viruses pathogenic to animals, most of the resistant ones are either in the pox group or amongst the very small viruses. The results may prove of use to workers who at times need to separate one virus from mixture with others or with bacteria. The findings may also be of value in any attempt at virus classification.
