An ideal disinfectant should posses high bactericidal activity, long shelf life, be ready for use without any preliminary activation and utilized after use without negative effect to the environment. Long storing of stable chemicals is available, but their utilization requires equivalent activation by another agent or energy. Therefore, combination of stability and easy utilization is impossible.
In order to exclude the preliminary activation stage before usage of a liquid chemical germicide, it should be noted that all variety of biocidal agents are belong to few classes of chemicals well-known for tens of years.
Appearance of new class of chemicals, which will meet the requirement, is unlikely. Modern tendency in developing new disinfectants is in search for activation means of known disinfectants, and not the creation of new ones. Addition of activators using an extra physical influence, i.e. creating conditions converting active ingredients into metastable state at the moment of…
