The antimicrobial action of 11 compounds involving guaiacyl- and syringyl-like structures (low-molecular-weight part of lignin), gallic acid and its derivatives, cinnamic acid and its derivatives, veratric acid, anisic acid and crotonic acid (a total of 25 compounds) against bacteria, yeast-like organisms and protozoa was examined. Aromatic compounds modified in the C-side chain and aldehydes were effective preferentially againstTrichomonas vaginalis, whereas against bacteria and yeast-like organisms eugenol was the most effective inhibitor.
