- Disinfection is essential in terms of the public health or environmental hygiene. Hypochlorous acid (HOCL) solutionwas developed as a disinfectant in Korea. We evaluated the germicidal activity of HOCL against various pathogenic microbes.Thirty-one ATCC strains were exposed to HOCL solution at various concentrations (20, 40 and 80 ppm) for 1 minute. Allthe strains of bacteria, yeasts and mycobacteria were killed at 80 ppm after exposure to HOCL. The results suggest thatHOCL solution could be used to effectively disinfect public areas.
