ABSTRACT
The effect of oxidising microbiocides (DCDMH and BCDMH) on the activity of bacteria in the processes of denitrification (Bacillus licheniformis) and desulfurication (Desulfotomaculum ruminis) is studied.
Desulfotomaculum ruminis bacteria have been found more resistant than the Bacillus licheniformis bacteria to the inhibiting effect of active halogen released from the studied halogenodimethylhydantoines.
The study has shown that the compounds tested can be used as a safe source of slowly released halogen for disinfection purposes.
