Abstract

Citric acid had a toxic effect on the mycelial growth ofGeotrichum candidum. At equal pH, citric acid was more toxic than HCl but its effect was minimized by adding CaCl2. The results indicate that the toxic effect of citric acid is due to the undissociated component and its ability to sequester the essential cations present in the growth medium.
