Description of key information

The inhibitory effect of 2-chlorobenzonitrile on the bacteria S. aureus, S. coelicolor, S. virginiae, and S. abikoensis was investigated by exposing the bacteria to the test substance in liquid agar to 2-chlorobenzonitrile concentrations of 0, 1, 3, 5 and 10 mg/L.
Inhibition of the bacteria S. aureus, S. coelicolor, and S. virginiae was found at 5 mg 2-chlorobenzonitrile/L. S. abikoensis cells were inhibited at 10 mg 2-chlorobenzonitrile/L.
