ANTIMICROBIAL POTENTIAL OF SELECTED THIOSULFONATES-BASED BIOCIDES AND BIOSURFACTANTS AGAINST BACTERIA AND FUNGI

Abstract

The antimicrobial potential of ethylthiosulfonate and methylthiosulfonate in absence and in presence of rhamnolipid-biosurfactant was investigated against Bacillus subtilis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Alcaligenes faecalis and Rhizopus nigricans. The results demonstrated that the bactericidal and fungicidal ef- fects of both inhibitors were well expressed. Methylthiosulfonate has a stronger antimicrobial effect. The presence of rhamnolipid-biosurfactant enhanced the bactericidal, sporocidal and fungicidal effect of inhibitors. The results indicate that ethylthiosulfonate and methylthiosulfonate alone or in combination with rhamnolipid-biosurfactant have a potential for application in industry to en- hance the effectiveness of the production process, in agriculture to minimize the presence of harmful phytopathogens and in biomedicine for new antimicro- bial drug therapy.
