Abstract

Summary: Forty-five strains of sulphate-reducing bacteria showed marked differences in their resistance to Hibitane (I.C.I. Ltd.) and, to a lesser degree, to cetyltrimethylammonium bromide. Panacide (British Drug Houses Ltd.) was effective against all the strains. The relevance of these findings to modern views on the taxonomy of the sulphate-reducers and to the problem of inhibiting these organisms in the field is discussed.
