LauricidinR (monolaurin) and related compounds were tested against 16 fungi belonging to different groups and having different cell wall composition. Lauricidin Plus F (a combination of monolaurin, butylated hydroxy anisole and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) was the most effective agent and inhibited the growth of all fungi tested at a concentration of 0.1%. Lauribic (a combination of monolaurin and sorbic acid) also exhibited strong antifungal activity but was less effective than Lauricidin Plus F. In most cases Lauricidin showed antifungal activity at a concentration of 0.5%. Other commercial samples of monolaurin, e.g. Lauricidin 812 (A), Lauricidin 802 (B), and Lauricidin 112 (C), showed higher antifungal activity than Lauricidin. Tests comparing Lauricidin Plus F with sorbic acid, K sorbate and propionic acid, showed that Lauricidin Plus F has higher antifungal activity except when sclerotia of Sclerotium rolfsii were used for inoculation. Lauricidin Plus F was fungistatic and maintained its activity in a semi‐synthetic medium for at least 21 days at 26°C. Copyright © 1982, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
