Mechanisms of action of antibacterial biocides

Denyer, Stephen Paul 1995. Mechanisms of action of antibacterial biocides. International Biodeterioration & Biodegradation 36 (3-4) , pp. 227-245. 10.1016/0964-8305(96)00015-7

Antibacterial biocides are represented by a wide range of chemical agents. This chemical diversity offers a multiplicity of potentially damaging interactions with the bacterial cell. Only rarely, however, are these interactions non-specific in nature; more frequently, the morphology and physiology of the cell, when combined with the physicochemical properties of the biocide, will dictate specific targets or target regions. A knowledge and understanding of these lesions offers a powerful tool in the search for novel chemistries and improved biocidal capabilities.
