What is Chlorine Dioxide?
Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is a chemical compound consisting of one chlorine atom and two oxygen atoms. It is a reddish to yellowish-green gas at room temperature that dissolves in water. It is used for a variety of antimicrobial uses, including disinfection.
Chlorine dioxide is used as a disinfectant, sanitizer and sterilizer with growing usage across many industries and countries. Some of the industries are the beverage industry, fruit and vegetable processing plants, pulp and paper industries, and industrial waste treatment sites.
Chlorine Dioxide as a disinfectant?
Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is in general a very powerful disinfectant. Chlorine dioxide is a broad oxidant and sanitizing agent; it functions by disrupting cell membranes and protein synthesis. It can be used as a gas or in an aqueous form.
Chlorine dioxide has been widely studied as a sanitizer and typical aqueous concentrations range from 50 to 200 ppm. As a gas, chlorine dioxide has been shown to kill bacterial spores at concentrations ranging from 10 to 40 mg mole per liter and with contact times of at least 30 min on surfaces such as metals, plastics, and glass (but less efficiently when applied to wood).
Concentrations of chlorine dioxide gas as low as 2 mg mole per liter have been shown to inactivate more than 5 log CFU cm−2 of Listeriamonocytogenes biofilm cells on a meat slicer, demonstrating the potential of this sanitizer. (See more on ScienceDirect.com)
