Fungicides, also known as biocides, are mainly divided into agricultural fungicides and industrial fungicides:
Agricultural Biocides are a class of pesticides used to prevent and control plant diseases caused by various pathogenic microorganisms, generally referred to as fungicides. But internationally, it is usually used as a general term for the prevention and treatment of various pathogenic microorganisms. With the development of fungicides, subcategories such as bactericides, virucides, and algaecides have been distinguished.
Industrial Biocides can be divided into two categories: oxidizing fungicides and non-oxidizing fungicides according to their sterilization mechanism. Oxidizing bactericides are usually strong oxidants, and they achieve bactericidal purposes mainly by oxidizing with metabolic enzymes in the bacteria.
Commonly used oxidizing fungicides include chlorine, chlorine dioxide, bromine, ozone, hydrogen peroxide and so on. Non-oxidizing bactericides act on special parts of microorganisms in the form of toxicants, thereby destroying the cells or living bodies of microorganisms to achieve bactericidal effect. Common non-oxidizing bactericides are chlorophenols, isothiazolinones, and quaternary ammonium salts. Wait.
