What is the difference between antifungal and antibacterial agent?
分享到: 0
Mould of bacteria and fungi, algae has strong inhibition and killing effect. Mainly used in cosmetics, detergent, gel water, cream, liquid soap and other daily antiseptic wipes. Mildew, usually refers to the paint and other products in the state of dry film, which is film, in order to prevent the growth of mold is in effect. To mildew fungicide state under dry film, mainly for the mold, killing an additive inhibition of fungal growth.           
The main ingredients of the antibacterial agent are organosilicon copper quaternary ammonium salt, Carson, surfactant, synergist and so on. A fungicides that prevents microbes from causing mildew. There are phenols (such as phenol, chlorophenol (PCP) such as salt), organic mercury (such as oleic acid phenyl mercury), organic copper salts (such as 8- oxine copper), organic tin salts (such as chloride or triethylene three butyl tin) and inorganic salt, copper sulfate, mercuric chloride, sodium fluoride etc.. It is used in plastics, rubber, textiles, paint and insulating materials, etc.           
The main ingredient is preservative calcium propionate, propionic acid, sorbic acid, benzoic acid, acetic acid, is used to prevent mildew and mildew in feed or raw materials in the storage process, the general should be added to feed factory, now equipped with farmers in the feed to add is no sense of what.           
The main ingredients of the market are activated carbon and some polymers, such as high polymer, zeolite, diatomite, kaolin, montmorillonite, aluminosilicate, glucomannan, mycotoxin specific enzyme and mesoscale bearing aluminosilicate.           
Antibacterial and mildew are different, the mechanism of antimicrobial agent and fungicide is slightly different, because different or antibacterial agent, its effective ingredients are not the same, the mechanism will be different. Antimicrobial agents are usually agents that kill and inhibit the growth of bacteria. Fungicide usually refers to preparation can kill or inhibit the growth of fungi. One is against bacteria, one against mold. But if from a broad perspective, bacteria and fungi belong to the bacteria, and the antiseptic at this time naturally refers to the preparation of anti bacteria and mold. Each kind of antibacterial agent or preservative, have the ability to kill and inhibit bacteria and fungi, but the focus is not the same, some preparation (antifungal) mold ability is very strong, but the ability to inhibit bacteria will be slightly weaker. Some preparations have better inhibitory ability to bacteria than to mould, but no matter for mold or bacteria, the same drug action mechanism is the same.           
With a fungicide or antibacterial agent may have several mechanisms and methods. A lot of antifungal agents are compound, containing a variety of anti - mildew and antibacterial ingredients, but if they are analyzed from a single antibacterial component, the action is very simple. Therefore, the mechanism of fungicides and fungicide mainly depends on its effective ingredients inside. Mildew mechanism of antimicrobial agents can be divided into strong oxidation and sterilization, sterilization active groups interfere with or disrupt the flow of cytoplasm, resulting in cell plasma membrane disintegration and play a bactericidal effect and inhibition of protein synthesis, genetic material synthesis, pierce the cell membrane or cell wall, let the propagation required overflow etc..           
Although it looks almost antibacterial and mildew, but the composition is different, so the mechanism is different.
