Diamines / Diamidines Disinfectant Mechanism of Action

Diamines / Diamidines Disinfectant Mechanism of Action

Posted by James Holder on May 3, 2017 3:04 pm

Hello All!

Been a while since I have posted on here but have always been reading the forums when I can. The Marketing Department have asked me to explain the biocidal mechanism of action of the diamine based disinfectant we manufacture. After plenty of reading around I am strugging to find a clear and detailed mechanism, only brief descriptions such as 'induces amino acid leakage' or 'disrupts nucleic acids within the cell' but very little about how it would be transported in and how it in fact does this (and thus how it has its biocidal effect).

Can anyone help me out? Any links or direction to some information on the fundamental science of this? The active component is N - (3-Aminopropyl) - N - dodecylpropane - 1,3 - diamine.

Cheers in advance.
