It is ten times more effective than formaldehyde and less toxic. However, it must be limited and controlled because of its toxic properties and hazards. It is important to avoid skin contact with glutaraldehyde as it has been documented to cause skin sensitization.
Glutaraldehyde is also an inhalation hazard. Cidex, a commercially prepared glutaraldehyde disinfectant is used routinely for cold surface sterilization of clinical instruments.
Chlorine Compounds Chlorine compounds are good disinfectants on clean surfaces, but are quickly inactivated by organic matter and thus reducing the biocidal activity. They have a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity and are inexpensive and fast acting.
Environmental Health & Safety
Hypochlorites, the most widely used of the chlorine disinfectants, are available in liquid e. Household bleach has an available chlorine content of 5.
Because of its oxidizing power, it loses potency quickly and should be made fresh and used within the same day it is prepared. There are two potential occupational exposure hazards when using hypochlorite solutions.
The first is the production of the carcinogen bis-chloromethyl ether when hypochlorite solutions come in contact with formaldehyde.
The second is the rapid production of chlorine gas when hypochlorite solutions are mixed with an acid. Care must also be exercised in using chlorine — based disinfectants which can corrode or damage metal, rubber, and other susceptible surfaces.
Bleached articles should never be autoclaved without reducing the bleach with sodium thiosulfate or sodium bisulfate. Chloramine T which is prepared from sodium hypochlorite and p-toluenesulfonamide is a more stable, odorless, less corrosive form of chlorine but has decreased biocidal activity in comparison to bleach.
Iodophors Iodophors are used both as antiseptics and disinfectants. An iodophor is a combination of iodine and a solubilizing agent or carrier; the resulting complex provides a sustained-release reservoir of iodine and releases small amounts of free iodine in aqueous solution. Antiseptic iodophors are not suitable for use as hard-surface disinfectants because they contain significantly less free iodine than do those formulated as disinfectants. Both bleach and iodophors should be made up in cold water in order to prevent breakdown of the disinfectant.
They also have some detergent action, and they are good disinfectants. However, some quaternary ammonium compounds activity is reduced in the presence of some soaps or soap residues, detergents, acids and heavy organic matter loads. They are generally ineffective against viruses, spores and Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Basically these compounds are not suitable for any type of terminal disinfection. The mode of action of these compounds is through inactivation of energy producing enzymes, denaturation of essential cell proteins, and disruption of the cell membrane. Many of these compounds are better used in water baths, incubators, and other applications where halide or phenolic residues are not desired. Phenolics: O-phenophenoate-base Compounds Phenolics are phenol carbolic acid derivatives.
These biocides act through membrane damage and are effective against enveloped viruses, rickettsiae, fungi and vegetative bacteria. They also retain more activity in the presence of organic material than other disinfectants.
Cresols, hexachlorophene, alkyl- and chloro derivatives and diphenyls are more active than phenol itself. Some hydroxides are more effective than would be predicted from their values. In general acids are better disinfectants than alkalis. Weak organic acids are more potent than inorganic acids despite low dissociation rates in solution. Heavy Metals: Soluble salts of mercury, silver lactate, mercuric chloride and mercurous chloride are efficient bactericidal agents. Silver nitrate and mercuric chloride are commonly used as aqueous solutions.
Although the assignment of some chapters to a particular section seems rather arbitrary, the editors have ensured that related chapters are not repetitive and are adequately cross-referenced.

The book covers all aspects of the subject matter, from the chemical structure of disinfectants and basic principles of physical methods, through their spectra of activity, mechanisms and kinetics of action to insights into their application in practice. For those of us who have regularly sampled the resource, the new edition has a familiar feel. Indeed, as only 7 years have elapsed since publication of the second edition, an early concern was that this edition might be a bit too familiar, covering as it does a field not normally noted for a rapid rate of progress, despite the author's assertion to the contrary in the preface!
In fact, approaching pages have been added and the extra material is particularly relevant to readers with a medical background. There are new chapters on such thorny topics as the treatment of laundry and clinical waste and the reuse of disposable devices which warranted brief comments only in previous editions and a greatly expanded section on antiviral activity of biocides.
Several other chapters are under new authorship and have either been completely re-written e. By chemical type -- 7. Dychdala -- 8. Gottardi -- 9. Block -- Wickramanayake -- Larson and H. Morton -- O'Connor and J. Rubino -- Merianos -- Dychdala and John A.

Infectivity is tissue dependent with the brain, spinal cord, and eye suspected to have the highest infectivity. Block -- Part II. The es- tablishment of strict regulations and hospital training programmes for disinfection and sterilization procedures, and the reuse of disposable devices is urgently needed in Mexico.
Many of these compounds are better used in water baths, incubators, and other applications where halide or phenolic residues are not desired.
