Bactericide

  • A bactericide or bacteriocide, abbreviated Bcidal, is a substance that kills bacteria and, ideally, nothing else. Bactericides are disinfectants, antiseptics or antibiotics.
  • Spray applications of bactericides effectively inhibit mine acid formation for three or four months and have to be repeated several times a year to get effective control on active refuse and coal piles.
  • Bactericidal antibiotics kill bacteria; bacteriostatic antibiotics slow their growth or reproduction.
  • Potassium iodide, often combined with iodine, is a potent and fast-acting bactericide used in medical and dental applications.
