Antimicrobial effect of vapours of geraniol, (R)-(-)-linalool, terpineol, gamma-terpinene and 1,8-cineole on airborne microbes using an airwasher


, : Antimicrobial effect of vapours of geraniol, (R)-(-)-linalool, terpineol, gamma-terpinene and 1,8-cineole on airborne microbes using an airwasher. Flavour and Fragrance Journal 22(5): 435-437

Five selected compounds, geraniol, (R)-(-)-linalool, terpineol, gamma-terpinene and 1,8-cineole, were tested for their influence on airborne microbes when vaporized with an air washer. Terpineol and 1,8-cineole showed the highest antimicrobial activities. The average reduction of germ count was 68% and 64%, respectively. Although gamma-terpinene gave the lowest result among the compounds investigated, the average reduction of germ count was still 40%. When water without volatile compounds was sprayed, the colony forming units increased. These results show the positive effect of selected aroma compounds on the reduction of microbes in the room.
