Ricinoleic and acid oleic acid derivatives were screened for their antimicrobial activity, under optimum growing-conditions, against several species of bacteria, yeasts, and molds. Several ricinoleic acid derivatives and petroselinic (iso-oleic) acid exhibited considerable activity; in fact, their activity against some micro-organisms was comparable to sorbic and 10-undecenoic acid, known antimicrobial agents, as indicated by this test.
