Hypochlorous Acid - Analytical Methods and Antimicrobial Activity
Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is produced by the human body’s immune cells to fight infections. It is effective against a broad range of microorganisms. It is non-toxic, non-irritant and non-corrosive at proper usage concentrations. There are some available commercial products that contain HOCl. However, its low storage stability constitutes a major challenge. This review considers the antimicrobial activity of HOCl and its methods of analysis.
