Researchers at Purdue University have developed novel antimicrobial agents to solve the continued problem of drug-resistant bacterial strains; approximately 20,000 people die in the US every year from drug-resistant infections. These antimicrobial agents potently inhibit bacterial growth in several species, including drug-resistant strains, at concentrations as low as 0.0675 micrograms per milliliter. This family of compounds contains both bactericidal and bacteriostatic agents.

-Inhibits drug resistant bacteria strains
-Kills bacteria at low concentration

Potential Applications:
-Antimicrobial Agent
