Iodine and iodine compounds are used as disinfectants and antiseptics. Povidone-iodine (10%) was found to be the most effective antiseptic, which inhibits the growth of all bacteria most commonly used in patients. As a result of the studies, it has been determined that povidone-iodine (10%) is very effective in all dilutions of the bacteria, the effectiveness of which has been tested. It suppressed growth in all bacteria after 1 minute of exposure. The amount of use is limited by various authorities.
Determination of iodine analysis is performed in biocidal and antiseptic products in our laboratory.
Determination of Benzalkonium Chloride (C8-C10-C12-C14-C16-C18) and Didecyl Dimethyl Ammonium Chloride (C8-C10-C12):
Benzalkonium chloride (Alkyldimethylbenzylammonium chloride), referred to by the trade name Zephiran, is a kind of cationic surfactant. Benzalkonium chloride is a quaternary ammonium compound with antiseptic and disinfectant properties, and is an organic salt. It is used as a skin antiseptic and general disinfectant.
A 10% solution (or more) of Benzalkonium Chloride is toxic to humans, causing skin and mucous membrane irritation. Studies have proven that benzalkonium chloride has a genotoxic effect and causes allergic reactions. The use of 0.1% in biocidal products has an irritant effect on mucosal surfaces.
