May 30, 2019

The bactericides is also referred to as a biocide, a bactericidal algicide, a microbicide, etc. when used, and generally refers to a chemical which can effectively control or kill microorganisms, bacteria, fungi and algae in the water system. Mainly divided into agricultural bactericides and industrial bactericides.

Agricultural bactericides

It is a class of pesticides used to control plant diseases caused by various pathogenic microorganisms, and generally refers to fungicides. However, internationally, it is generally a generic term for agents that control various pathogenic microorganisms. With the development of bactericides, sub-classes such as bactericides, viricides and algicides are distinguished.

Industrial bactericides

According to the sterilization mechanism, it can be divided into two categories: oxidative bactericide and non-oxidizing bactericide. Oxidizing bactericides are usually strong oxidants, which are mainly sterilized by oxidation with metabolic enzymes in bacteria. Commonly used oxidizing biocides are chlorine gas, chlorine dioxide, bromine, ozone, hydrogen peroxide and the like. The non-oxidizing bactericide acts on a special part of the microorganism in the form of a toxic agent, thereby destroying the cells or living bodies of the microorganism to achieve a bactericidal effect. Common non-oxidizing bactericides are chlorophenols, isothiazolinones, quaternary ammonium salts. www.china-zhufengchem.com
