Abstract

The effect of dilution and temperature on the antibacterial properties of potassium sorbate was determined. The time taken to kill a standard inoculum of Escherichia coli was increased considerably after either dilution of the preservative or lowering of the temperature. The value for the concentration exponent, η, was approximately 3 and that for the temperature coefficient, Q10, was 2.3.
