Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biocides and disinfectants are widely employed throughout the world and used in a variety of applications including hand sanitization, surface disinfection in food preparation, surface sterilization in hospitals, and the disinfection of a variety of solutions that are used in industry (e.g., metal-recovery fluids). As has been the case with antibiotics, biocide resistance is increasing, and threatens to reduce the applicability of biocides to control contamination. The proposed, open-source, special issue will bring together all current knowledge of biocides and will provide unprecedented access.

It is anticipated that the following topics will be included in the special issue:

  • Mechanisms of biocide action
  • Mechanisms of biocide resistance
  • Measurement of biocide susceptibility
  • Identification of biocide targets
  • Selection for biocide resistance
  • Interaction between biocides
  • Effect of growth conditions on biocide susceptibility
