Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The surface tension of shikimic acid at 20°C is 49.86 +/- 0.1 mN·m-1.
Executive summary:

Surface tension was deterimend by the plate method. The surface tension of shikimic acid at 20°C at a concentration of 1 g/L in ultrapure water is 49.86 +/- 0.1 mN·m-1 (mean of three measurements, corrected with a correction factor).
