Mechanisms of action of biocides

Denyer, Stephen Paul 1990. Mechanisms of action of biocides. International Biodeterioration 26 (2-4) , pp. 89-100. 10.1016/0265-3036(90)90050-H

Detailed studies have clearly demonstrated that few biocides can be considered now as general cell poisons. Biocidal action may result through physicochemical interaction with microbial target structures, specific reactions with biological molecules, or disturbance of selected metabolic or energetic processes. Mechanism of action studies, if intelligently applied, can provide direction to the development of novel biocides and biocidal systems.
