Abstract

Antibacterial activity of various secondary metabolites from plants against Propionibacterium acnes was tested. In addition, the study of combinations of compounds to enhance the total activity against this follicular bacterium was investigated. A series of long-chain alcohols was studied in great detail to gain new insights into the role of the hydrophobic alkyl groups in the activity.
