Upon enzymatic or chemical hydrolysis of the galactoside group, chloramphenicol, an antibiotic (bacteriostatic), is produced.

Chloramphenicol, also known as chlornitromycin, is an effective antibiotic useful against a wide variety of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, including most anaerobic organisms. This analog of chloramphenicol contains a galactose conjugated to the active site of action which, upon enzymatic or chemical hydrolysis of the galactoside group, releases the active chloramphenicol.
