Antimicrobials and Biocides

This Polymer Bulletin is a current awareness service from the Polymer Library, the world's largest database dedicated to polymer literature.

Product detail
Product format: Weekly e-mail

Every week when the Polymer Library abstracts database is updated with new records, you will be sent a bulletin alerting you to any items that relate to antimicrobials, biocides, fungicides or bactericides. 

Description

Antimicrobials and biocides are substances that kill life, particularly pathogenic microorganisms, including bacteria (like MRSA), viruses and parasites. Their inclusion in polymers is no surprise and is getting increasingly popular in obvious applications including medical products and food-contact, but their use extends to mould-prevention in seals, pallet sanitisation and beyond. Research levels are beginning to pick up as biocidal properties become a priority in a whole host of areas.

A Current Awareness service from Smithers Rapra may be just what you need to update your knowledge with ease and accuracy without having to waste time, effort and money finding the information yourself. Get in touch to find out more.

If there are many people within your organisation who would benefit from this information then get in touch to talk to us about our multi-recipient bulletin.
