Summary The 50% inhibitory concentrations (IC50) of n-alcohols (C2, n-C3 to n-C7) were found well correlated with n-alcohols partition coefficients showing a relationship between toxicity and hydrophobicity. The inhibitory behavior of ethanol was examined through systematic variations of glucose and alcohol concentrations; the results show non-competitive inhibition of glucose metabolism for low ethanol concentration (0–12% v/v).
