Prevention of undesired interactions between biocides and additives in synthetic materials to improve efficacy and to reduce the necessary amount of biocides
At a glance
Biocides are used to protect materials against undesired decomposition by microorganisms and to improve hygiene protection. Many biocides are deactivated in presence of plastic-additives. Therefore, a large excess of biocides is often necessary. Within this project, the better understanding of chemical interactions between plastic-additives and biocides will lead to new solutions using less biocides. This will generate positive ecological and economical impacts.
