Chlorine Dioxide: Does it contribute to human health? A brief review

By Bastidas-Ortiz, Humberto ABSTRACT Chlorine dioxide, ClO2, a non-patentable substance, is a molecule composed by two of the mostdisinfectant elements found in nature, chlorine and oxygen, both of them electronegative. As early as 1850, ClO2 has been being used in the oxidation of water and, since 1944, in the treatment of waste water and the …


Inactivation of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE) on Various Environmental Surfaces by Mist Application of a Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide and Quaternary Ammonium Compound-Based Disinfectant

This study evaluated the efficacy of mist application of a stabilized chlorine dioxide and quaternary ammonium compound-based disinfectant (Cryocide20) for inactivation of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE) on various environmental surfaces. Overall, results suggest that mist application of Cryocide20 disinfectant may be an effective option for reduction of low levels of …


Effect of chlorine dioxide gas of extremely low concentration on absenteeism of schoolchildren

In this 2009 study performed in Japan, extremely low concentration chlorine dioxide gas was released into the school classroom. During a period of 38 consecutive school days the rate of schoolchildren absent from the school was markedly lower (1.5%) in a classroom where the ClO2 device was placed. DOWNLOAD DOCUMENT HERE


Chloroxyanion residue on seeds and sprouts after chlorine dioxide sanitation of alfalfa seed

“This 2018 peer-reviewed research published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, demonstrates that chlorine dioxide gas is very effective at eliminating pathogens from a variety of fruits, vegetables, melons, seeds, and food preparation surfaces. “Data generated by this study show that even when high concentrations of chlorine dioxide gas are used to treat …


Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics of Alternate Drinking Water Disinfectants

“In this 1982 research performed on rats it was identified that C102 (chlorine dioxide) and its metabolites are eliminated from the body more rapidly than chlorine, and they do not appear to increase trihalomethane concentrations at low dosages.” This documents a benefit and increased safety associated with the use of chlorine dioxide for water disinfection …


Chlorine Dioxide Water Disinfection: A Prospective Epidemiology Study

This peer-reviewed article reports on a rural epidemiologic study of 198 individuals exposed to drinking water disinfected with chlorine dioxide for a period of 3 months. A control group of 118 nonexposed persons was also studied. Pre-exposure hematologic and serum chemical parameters were compared with test results after 115 days of exposure. Statistical analysis of …


Inhibition of the Binding of Variants of SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus Spike Protein to a Human Receptor by Chlorine Dioxide

By Norio Ogata and Takanori Miura, “Annals of Pharmacology and Pharmaceutics” AbstractAim: COVID-19 caused by a new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, has become an ongoing worldwide pandemic. A safe and potent virucidal disinfection system is urgently needed to protect the population from the virus. Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) is a powerful disinfectant that is known to inactivate both …

Systematic Evaluation of the Efficacy of Chlorine Dioxide in Decontamination of Building Interior Surfaces Contaminated with Anthrax Spores

In this article the efficacy of chlorine dioxide (CD) gas generated by two generation systems, Sabre (wet system with gas generated in water) and ClorDiSys (dry system with gas generated in air), were evaluated for inactivation of Bacillus anthracis spores (anthrax spores) on six building interior surfaces. Results showed CD was effective on all surfaces …
