I have been researching the efficacy of essential oils and methylglyoxal as antibacterial agents against multidrug-resistant bacteria for fifteen years. Presently, I am focusing my research on the development of topical emollients of essential oils and methylglyoxal in carrier oils to combat multidrug-resistant bacteria to be used in health-care settings.
