Benzylpenicillin, commonly known as penicillin G, is the gold standard type of penicillin.

It is an antibacterial agent intended for intravenous or intramuscularly use.

Benzylpenicillin is bactericidal against penicillin-susceptible microorganisms during the stage of active multiplication. It acts by inhibiting biosynthesis of cell-wall mucopeptide.

Benzylpenicillin is noted to possess effectiveness mainly against Gram-positive organisms.

Some Gram-negative organisms such as Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Neisseria meningitidis are also reported to be susceptible to Benzylpenicillin.

It is not active against the penicillinase-producing bacteria.
