Özet

Animal hides support the growth of highly diverse Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacterial populations. These bacterial populations cause important damage to the hides during brine curing and pre-soaking processes, subsequently reducing the quality of the final leather. It is usually difficult to combat the diverse resistance offered by both Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria in these processes in a short time with conventional antimicrobials.
