Chlorine Dioxide Mode of Action on Viruses

Chlorine dioxide (ClO₂) is a powerful biocide with proven efficacy against a wide range of microorganisms including viruses. Scientific research has been undertaken to understand the virucidal activity and mode of action of chlorine dioxide. Several ways have been identified for viral inactivation by chlorine dioxide, including protein and nucleic acid modification. Understanding the mode of action of chlorine dioxide, aids the advancement of products used in infection control.
