|Contribution||Reported the antiseptic property of iodine and other chemicals.|
|Notes||Reference to iodine not taken from Geison. According to Geison, Davaine claimed that various antiseptics could render anthrax blood non-infective ("non-offensive") and could also be used to treat the disease. The antiseptics did not include carbolic acid. See other Davaine entries.|
