Description

  • This application is a continuation of U.S. application Ser. No. 10/364,348 filed on Feb. 12, 2003, which claims the benefit of U.S. provisional application Ser. No. 60/355,753 filed on Feb. 12, 2002 under 35 U.S.C. section 119(e).
  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to disinfectants and, in particular, it relates to hydrogen peroxide solutions with improved disinfectant and antimicrobial properties.
  • BACKGROUND TO THE INVENTION
  • In the past few years, efforts have been concentrated on developing chemicals that will be highly effective against microorganisms when highly diluted, will be low in toxicity to humans and other animals, and will not injure the environment. Of the known disinfectants and antimicrobials, hydrogen peroxide appears to have exceptional potential, especially in terms of toxicity and injury to the environment, because the decomposition products, water and oxygen, are benign. Also, it tends to have broad spectrum antimicrobial activity. Broad spectrum activity is important in situations where harmful organisms are present but their identity is not known. Hydrogen peroxide based disinfectants are useful in many different applications, including in hospitals, clinics, laboratories, dental offices, home care and chronic care facilities. They may also be used in food and beverage processing and preparation, animal husbandry, the hospitality industry and for general sanitation, e.g. janitorial services.
  • In order to provide fast, effective action, prior art disinfectant solutions have had to employ relatively high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide. At higher concentrations, the solutions may not be practical or economically viable, may be subject to hazardous goods regulations, and may require special precautions for handling and use. For example, at concentrations of above about 8 w/w % aqueous solution, hydrogen peroxide is considered corrosive, more so at higher concentrations, and is also a strong oxidizing agent. Solutions containing less than about 8 w/w % hydrogen peroxide are preferred for their improved safety profile. At concentrations of 1-3 w/w % aqueous solution, hydrogen peroxide is considered non-corrosive and non-irritating; at concentrations of 3-7 w/w % aqueous solution, hydrogen peroxide is considered non-corrosive but an eye irritant.
  • Heretofore, one of the major drawbacks of hydrogen peroxide, in very low concentrations, is that its antimicrobial action is too slow. For example, prior art references indicate that a 0.1 w/w % aqueous solution of hydrogen peroxide requires 60 minutes to disinfect surfaces contaminated with staphylococcus aureus, whereas a 25.8 w/w % aqueous solution of hydrogen peroxide requires only 20 seconds. The latter solution is clearly unacceptable from both commercial and economic standpoints.
  • Attempts have been made to improve the efficacy of low concentration hydrogen peroxide disinfecting solutions. For example, Winterton et al. discloses, in U.S. Pat. No. 5,523,012, a hydrogen peroxide disinfecting solution for contact lenses buffered to a pH of about 6.9 and which has from about 0.1 w/w % to about 1.0 w/w % of an ocularly compatible surfactant. In one experiment, the addition of about 0.4% anionic sulfosuccinate surfactant improved the killing time for aspergillus fumigatus to 6.9 minutes, compared to 12.3 minutes for a solution containing no added surfactant. However, even 6.9 minutes is far too long for many applications.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 5,264,229 to Mannig et al teaches a process of extending the shelf life of commercially processed food products, such as poultry, fowl and seafood products by contacting the food products with a sufficient amount of food grade hydrogen peroxide and food grade surface active agent selected from the group consisting of alkyl aryl sulfonates, sulfates, sulfonates of fatty acids, sulfates of alcohols and sulfosuccinates. The hydrogen peroxide and surface active agent are present in chiller water in which the food products are immersed and serve to remove and reduce the number of bacteria on the surface of the food products. Up to 1 w/w % hydrogen peroxide and from 5 to 100 ppm surface active agent are used in the chiller water. The solutions of Mannig et al are able to achieve only moderate levels of disinfectant activity using a 45 minute contact time. While the Mannig solution may be sufficient for preserving foods, it is inadequate for short contact time disinfection.
  • Hydrogen peroxide is a compound which is highly susceptible to decomposition by the presence of dissolved impurities, mostly transition metal cations. Impurities causing hydrogen peroxide decomposition are typically contained in either the water used in preparation of a commercial disinfectant from an aqueous hydrogen peroxide stock, or in the additional ingredients of the formulation (i.e. surfactants, builders, etc.). The most effective method for preventing decomposition of the hydrogen peroxide is by sequestration or chelation of the dissolved catalytic metal species, typically through the use of phosphate or phosphonate compounds. The increased product shelf life gained by the use of phosphorus stabilizers has allowed the commercial, albeit limited, use of such compositions.
  • Most if not all peroxygen-based mixtures used for cleaning and disinfection discussed in the prior art either suffer from impracticably long contact times, unfeasibly high hydrogen peroxide concentrations or contain at least one type of phosphorus compound in non-trace quantities. Although the role of phosphorus in the eutrophication of lakes and rivers due to artificial sources is still a matter of debate, many regions in the world have imposed severe restrictions on the amount of phosphorus that can be discharged into storm and sanitary sewers.
  • In certain situations, it is therefore desirable to provide a complex multicomponent hydrogen peroxide solution with the capability of disinfection at short contact times, has low non-hazardous concentrations of ingredients, and which contains no phosphorus-based materials.
  • Though the prior art is replete with hydrogen peroxide containing disinfectants, the present invention is intended to provide an improved hydrogen peroxide disinfectant having enhanced activity to permit rapid and effective disinfection of hard surfaces and skin of humans and animals with a hydrogen peroxide concentration as low as 0.5 w/w %. Select embodiments of the present invention do not contain any added phosphorus-based materials other than those naturally present in commercial hydrogen peroxide stock solutions, which are present in quantities permitted in jurisdictions which impose restrictions on phosphorus discharge into the environment.

  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • It has now been found that the addition of certain anionic surfactants in certain concentrations greatly, and surprisingly, enhances the bactericidal and/or virucidal activity of aqueous acidic hydrogen peroxide solutions. Furthermore, by the careful selection of the components in the mixture, solutions of commercially acceptable stability and cleaning ability can be achieved without the use of phosphorus containing stabilizers.
  • In accordance with a first aspect, the invention provides a ready-to-use, aqueous disinfecting solution, having a pH of from about 0.5 to about 6, and consisting essentially of:
      • i) hydrogen peroxide in a concentration of from about 0.05 to about 8 w/w % of the total solution; and
      • ii) at least one anionic surfactant chosen from C8 to C16 alkyl aryl sulfonic acids and alkali metal, ammonium, ethanolamine, calcium and magnesium salts thereof; sulfonated C12 to C22 carboxylic acids and alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium salts thereof; C6 to C22 alkyl diphenyl oxide sulfonic acids and alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium salts thereof; naphthalene sulfonic acids and alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium salts thereof; C8 to C22 alkyl sulfonic acids and alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium salts thereof; alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium C8 to C18 alkyl sulfates; alkyl or alkenyl esters or diesters of sulfosuccinic acids in which the alkyl or alkenyl groups independently contain from six to eighteen carbon atoms and alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium salts thereof; and mixtures thereof; in a concentration of from about 0.02 to about 8 w/w % of the total solution.
  • The concentration of the hydrogen peroxide may be from about 0.05, 0.1, 0.45, or 0.5 w/w % of the total solution. Also, it may be up to about 4, 2.5, 2, 1.2, or 1 w/w % of the total solution. Preferably, the concentration is from about 0.5 to 1.2 w/w %.
  • The concentration of anionic surfactant may be from about 0.05 or 0.8 and up to about 6, 5, 4, 3.6, 2 or 1 w/w % of the total solution.
  • Furthermore, the pH of ready-to-use solutions may be from about 0.7, 1.0, 1.5, 2, or 2.5 to about 4.5, 4.0, 3.5, 2.5, or 2 w/w % of the total solution, and preferably from about 1 to about 4. In the case of hard surface disinfectants, the pH is more preferably from about 1.5 to about 3.5, while in the case of topical disinfectants, the pH is more preferably from about 2.5 to about 4.5. Preferred concentrate versions of these solutions have pH values ranging from about 0.7 to about 2. To achieve the preferred pH values, buffering or other pH adjusting agents may be added to the solution. These agents include organic and inorganic acids or bases such as phosphoric acid, citric acid, sulfuric acid, sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide, the latter being otherwise known as caustic potash.
  • The anionic surfactant is preferably chosen from dodecyl benzene sulfonic acid and alkali metal, ammonium, ethanolamine, calcium and magnesium salts thereof; C6 to C22 alkyl diphenyl oxide sulfonic acids and alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium salts thereof; ethoxylated dodecyl sulfosuccinates, dioctyl sulfosuccinates, ethoxylated dodecyl sulfosuccinates, and mixtures thereof. More preferably, the anionic surfactant is chosen from dodecyl benzene sulfonic acid and an alkali metal salt thereof, C6 alkylated sulfonated diphenyl oxide disodium salt, disodium dioctyl sulfosuccinate, sodium lauryl sulfate, ammonium lauryl sulfate, disodium lauryl ether sulfosuccinate ethoxylated to 3 moles of ethylene oxide, and mixtures thereof.
  • Embodiments for use in topical applications (e.g. formulations to be applied to the skin of humans or animals) should contain those anionic surfactants which are mild to the skin, including disodium dioctyl sulfosuccinate, sodium lauryl sulfate, ammonium lauryl sulfate, disodium lauryl ether sulfosuccinate ethoxylated to 3 moles of ethylene oxide, and mixtures thereof.
  • To further enhance the germicidal efficacy of the solution, the solution may contain at least one additional ingredient chosen from a monocarboxylic acid (e.g. acetic acid and glycolic acid), a polycarboxylic acid (e.g. citric acid), benzyl alcohol, an alcohol comprising one to eight carbon atoms (e.g. propylene glycol n-propyl ether, ethylene glycol n-propyl ether, methanol, ethanol, iso-propanol, n-butanol and n-pentanol), and mixtures thereof. Preferred alcohols are the short chain (i.e. C1-C6) alcohols and benzyl alcohol. The carboxylic acids have known pH buffering, stabilizing and cleaning properties and are preferably present in a total concentration of from about 0.1 to about 10 w/w %, more preferably from about 0.05 to about 4.0 w/w % of the solution. Preferred monocarboxylic acids are glycolic acid and acetic acid. A preferred polycarboxylic acid is citric acid.
  • The alcohol is preferably present in a total concentration of from about 0.1 to about 10 w/w % of the total solution. In the case of topical solutions, the alcohol is preferably present in a concentration of from about 2 to about 5 w/w % so that the solution does not give rise to excessive drying and irritation. The recited alcohols are believed to also provide additional cleaning performance in respect of organic contaminants.
  • In accordance with a second aspect, the invention provides a concentrated aqueous hydrogen peroxide solution which can be diluted with water to produce a ready-to-use solution according to the first aspect. Accordingly, the concentration of the ingredients of the solution may be much higher than as stated above. For example, the hydrogen peroxide concentration may be as high as 20 w/w %. Similarly, the anionic surfactant concentration may be as high as 10 w/w %. If the diluent is regular tap water which will likely contain metal cations and other impurities serving to increase the rate of hydrogen peroxide decomposition, hydrogen peroxide stabilizers may be included in the solution. These will be described further below.
  • The invention also provides, in accordance with a third aspect, a solid disinfectant formulation which can be dissolved in water to produce a ready-to-use solution according to the first aspect. It will be clear to the person skilled in the art how to manufacture such a solid formulation. In such embodiments, the formulation comprises at least one hydrogen peroxide releasing component, which may be chosen from sodium percarbonate, sodium perborate monohydrate, and sodium perborate tetrahydrate. Preferably, the component is sodium percarbonate or sodium perborate. The anionic surfactants would be present either in salt form or in acid form, as will be apparent to the person skilled in the art.
  • Depending on the application, the present solution and solid formulation may contain the following additional optional ingredients which do not alter the basic and novel properties thereof. The basic and novel properties are defined herein to mean the bactericidal and/or virucidal activity of the solution and solid formulation. The total amount of these optional ingredients generally will not exceed 10 w/w % of the final, total, ready-to-use solution and often will not exceed about 7 w/w %. In solid embodiments of the invention, bulking agents may be included and, in such case, the total amount of optional ingredients may exceed 10 w/w % of the final, total, ready-to-use solution.
  • To improve stability of the solution, hydrogen peroxide stabilizers may be added. In jurisdictions which do not impose restrictions on phosphorus emissions, these stabilizers may be based on phosphorus. These include: 1-hydroxyethylidene-1,1-diphosphonic acid, amino trimethylene phosphonic acid), 2-hydroxyethylimino tri(methylene phosphonic acid), ethylene diamine tetra(methylene phosphonic acid), phosphoric acid, and sodium tripolyphosphate. As well, foam generating or stabilizing ingredients, emulsifiers, hydrotropes, and detergents may be included. Emulsifiers and hydrotropes are useful for maintaining phase stability, while detergents are useful for cleaning soiled surfaces and to add foaming.
  • Preferred emulsifiers and detergents are non-ionic alkylated alkoxylate surfactants, preferably polyoxyethylene surfactants. Preferred polyoxyethylene surfactants are alkyl polyoxyethylene surfactants and alkyl aryl polyoxyethylene surfactants. A preferred alkyl polyoxyethylene surfactant which is a detergent is C6-C10 alkyl, 3.5 moles of ethylene oxide (EO) alcohol ethoxylate (AE) sold in association with the trademark Alfonic L610-3.5. Also, preferred alkyl aryl polyoxyethylene surfactants which are emulsifiers are C8 to C16 alkylphenol alkoxylates. These include octyl phenol ethoxylate which is sold in association with the trademark Triton X-405.
  • The hydrotrope may be an anionic surfactant chosen from alkylated sulfonated diphenyl oxides, alkylated sulfonated diphenyl oxide salts, and mixtures thereof, and preferably is a C6 alkylated sulfonated diphenyl oxide disodium salt.
  • Typically, the emulsifiers, detergents and hydrotropes are present in a total concentration of about 10 to about 30 parts per hundred parts of hydrogen peroxide or up to about 3 w/w % of the solution. Preferably, they are present in a concentration of from about 0.04 to about 3 w/w %, more preferably from about 0.04 to 2.0 w/w %, and even more preferably from about 0.1 to about 2.0 w/w % of the total solution.
  • To enhance the marketable qualities of the product, coloring agents or dyes and scents or fragrances (e.g. oxycitrus fragrance) may be added.
  • In topical solutions, thickening agents (e.g. acrylic and biological polymers), moisturizing and other skin conditioning agents may be added to improve the feel of the product and to prevent drying of the skin.
  • Corrosion inhibitors may be added to embodiments of the invention for use in cleaning non-ferrous metal substrates. Examples include benzotriazoles (e.g. 1,2,3benzotriazole, hydrobenzotriazoles, carboxybenzotriazoles), sodium nitrite, sodium molybdate, sodium gluconate, sodium benzoate, and combinations thereof. Corrosion inhibitors may be present singularly or in combination and will typically be present in a concentration of from about 0.05 to about 10 w/w % of the total solution, and preferably from about 0.05 to about 1.5 w/w %.
  • The present inventive solutions may be applied by spraying, pouring or dipping, or through the use of dispensers, foaming triggers or impregnated cloths.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • Unless the context dictates otherwise, all concentration values are expressed based on the total solution or formulation of the specified embodiment. The term “consisting essentially of” shall be construed to mean, including the listed ingredients and such additional ingredients which do not materially affect the basic and novel properties of the solution or solid formulation (as applicable). The “basic and novel properties” are the bactericidal or virucidal activity of the solution or solid formulation. Also, when used herein, the term “about”, when used in connection with a specified value, means that value and such deviations therefrom which do not materially affect the way the solution or solid formulation works. Routine experiments may be performed to determine whether there is a material effect or not. For the sake of clarity, a material effect is an increase or decrease in disinfecting performance of 0.03 log10.
  • In accordance with the first and second aspects of the invention, the present inventive aqueous solution is made using commercially available hydrogen peroxide solutions sold by Degussa or FMC, for example. Such solutions are typically available as aqueous solutions in a concentration of 35 or 50 w/w %. As discussed in, for example, Kirk-Othmer, “Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology”, vol. 13 M. Howe-Grant (ed.) (New York: Wiley-Interscience, 1991) at page 965, these commercial solutions always contain traces of catalytically acting impurities which decompose the hydrogen peroxide, despite appropriate purification measures. Thus, commercial solutions of hydrogen peroxide include stabilizers in small amounts, i.e. measured in parts per million, and have an excellent shelf life. These stabilizers work to deactivate impurities, either by absorption or through the formation of complexes. Known stabilizers for use in stabilizing acidic hydrogen peroxide solutions include organic and inorganic sequestering agents, i.e. stannates and phosphates, and combinations of organic compounds and organometallic salts with or without stannates and phosphates. An exemplary stannate is sodium stannate trihydrate and an exemplary phosphate is sodium pyrophosphate.
  • Solutions having from about 0.01 to about 1.0 w/w %, especially about 0.5 w/w % hydrogen peroxide are suitable for use as household and commercial disinfectants, bactericides and/or virucides, sanitizers and cleaners. Solutions having about 3 to about 4 w/w % are suitable for use as multi-purpose cleaners and bleach alternatives in healthcare facilities, households and commercial facilities. Solutions having about 6 to about 8 w/w % hydrogen peroxide are suitable for use as sporicides, fungicides, virucides and/or bactericides, broad spectrum sanitizers, general purpose cleaners, and bleach alternatives, particularly in institutional, healthcare and food applications, and are suited for multiple level dilution according to the type of disinfection task.
  • The anionic surfactant enhances the bactericidal and/or virucidal activity of the solution. For bactericidal activity, the C8 to C16 alkyl aryl sulfonic acids and their aforesaid salts are preferred as they are widely available and relatively inexpensive.
  • They are also biodegradable. Preferred alkyl aryl sulfonic acids and their salts are dodecyl benzene sulfonic acid, and tridecyl benzene sulfonic acid and their salts, e.g. sodium, potassium, ammonium salts. Especially preferred are dodecyl benzene sulfonic acid and alkali metal or ammonium salts thereof.
  • The C6 to C22 alkyl diphenyl oxide sulfonic acids and alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium salts thereof have been found to impart virucidal activity to the solution. Preferred members of this class include C6 and C10 alkylated sulfonated diphenyl oxide disodium salts, and dodecyl diphenyl oxide disulfonic acid and disodium 4-dodecylated diphenyloxide sulfonate. The C6 alkylated sulfonated diphenyl oxide disodium salt is perhaps the most preferred.
  • Of the sulfonated C12 to C22 carboxylic acids and their aforesaid salts, sulfonated 9-octadecanoic acid, disodium 2-sulfo C12-C18 fatty acid salts and sodium methyl 2-sulfo C12-C16 esters are preferred.
  • A preferred salt of naphthalene sulfonic acid is sodium alkyl naphthalene sulfonate.
  • Preferred salts of C8 to C22 alkyl sulfonic acids are sodium octyl (C8) sulfonate, sodium C14-C17 sec-alkyl sulfonate, and the sodium salts of 1-octane sulfonic acid, 1-decane sulfonic acid, and tridecane sulfonic acid.
  • Of the aforesaid C8 to C18 alkyl sulfates, sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium octyl sulfate are preferred. In topical solutions, ammonium lauryl sulfate is also preferred.
  • Of the alkyl or alkenyl esters or diesters of sulfosuccinic acid in which the alkyl or alkenyl groups independently contain from six to eighteen carbon atoms and alkali metal, ammonium, calcium and magnesium salts thereof, disodium lauryl sulfosuccinate and sodium dioctyl sulfosuccinate are preferred in both hard surface and topical solutions. Disodium lauryl ether sulfosuccinate ethoxylated to 3 moles of ethylene oxide is also preferred in topical solutions.
  • Complex mixtures based on hydrogen peroxide may be unstable, with the hydrogen peroxide concentration diminishing greatly in time due to catalytic decomposition. This may be acceptable in the case of a dry powdered formulation which is used immediately after dissolution in water. However, in the case of aqueous solutions which are not used immediately modifications are required to stabilize or mitigate the decomposition of the hydrogen peroxide. A variety of factors influence the stability of hydrogen peroxide in solutions, including the temperature, the concentration of hydrogen peroxide, the pH value, and above all the presence of impurities with a decomposing effect. We have found that, by the careful selection of the adjuvant materials in the mixture, hydrogen peroxide disinfectant solutions of commercial value can be prepared without the addition of phosphorus-based stabilizers. This is of advantage in jurisdictions which impose restrictions on phosphorus emissions.
  • A first method of preparing an aqueous acidic solution according to the first and second aspects of the present invention comprises adding the anionic surfactant(s) and optional ingredients such as emulsifiers, detergents, hydrotropes, alcohols, scents, coloring agents, dyes, corrosion inhibitors, naturally occurring carboxylic acids, etc., to distilled water or water purified by other means. A commercially available hydrogen peroxide solution is then added and, if necessary, buffering or other pH adjusting agents are added to achieve the desired pH. A second method involves preparing a powdered formulation by mixing together solid forms of the ingredients of the present solution and then dissolving the powdered formulation in water.
  • The invention may be better understood by reference to the following examples. The following summary will assist in determining the ingredients of the exemplary solutions.
  • Hydrogen Peroxide
      • The hydrogen peroxide used in all the examples, except for example 10 and 14, is a 50 w/w % technical grade commercial solution manufactured by Degussa containing an effective amount of known stabilizers, estimated at less than 50 ppm. In examples 10 and 14, a 30 w/w % hydrogen peroxide solution sold by Degussa was used.

  • The results indicate that Solution 9 is an effective virucide and bactericide.
  • Solutions for Topical Application
  • The hands carry a variety of microorganisms which can be classified as transient or resident. Transient organisms do not grow naturally on the hands, while resident organisms grow naturally on the skin and are harder to remove. The most important transient species are gram negative bacilli such as Salmonella spp., Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella spp., and Staphylococcus aureus. Resident organisms consist mainly of Staphylococcus epidermidis and other coagulase-negative staphylococci, micrococci, and cornynebacteria (Ayliffe G. A. J., Babb, J. R. and H. A. Lilly, “Tests for Hand Disinfection”, Disinfectants: Their use and evaluation of effectiveness, Collins C. H., M. C. Allwood, S. F. Bloomfield and A. Fox (eds), Academic Press, London, UK, 1981). As a consequence, hand washing and disinfection play an important role in biosafety control in the health and dental care, veterinary care, and food handling and processing industries.
  • In large scale farming operations, animals are typically in close contact with each other and/or with pieces of equipment. Disease-causing organisms are easily transmitted from one animal to another and from equipment to animals. An example of a disease of economic importance is mastitis, which is an inflammation of the mammary glands of bovine species, caused by the presence of bacteria, the most common of which are Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus dysagalactiae and Streptococcus uberis. Mastitis results in lower milk yields and lower mild quality. Thus, its prevention through the combination of therapy and hygiene techniques is of paramount importance. Current prevention techniques consist of spraying, dipping or massaging the udder with a disinfectant liquid in order to maintain the bacterial population numbers under control.
  • In the control of mastitis, organisms need to be destroyed in very short periods of time, typically no longer than 1 minute, as the disinfectant solution is most easily applied to each animal after it is milked. The disinfecting solution must also be effective against a wide range of gram positive and gram negative organisms, and its activity should not be neutralized by the presence of an organic load. The antimicrobial active should be non-toxic to both the animal and the user, and should not contaminate the milk. Also, the mastitis-prevention composition should not irritate or cause the teat to peel, which will result in udder pain and ultimately affect the milk yield.
  • The invention provides embodiments which are useful in disinfecting the skin of humans and animals in contact times of less than 1 minute. These embodiments are designed to not only mitigate bacteria, but also to clean the skin without producing adverse effects with frequent use. They are designed to be used as an antimicrobial hand wash for health workers, a surgical scrub solution, a preoperative skin decontamination solution, or a wound cleanser and disinfectant. They may also be used for the periodic treatment of bovine teats for the prevention of mastitis.
  • In these embodiments, hydrogen peroxide is present in a concentration of between about 0.1 and about 2.5 w/w %, with the preferred range being from about 0.45 to about 1.20 w/w %. Higher concentrations of hydrogen peroxide may result in excessive skin irritation and in some cases temporary whitening of the skin. Lower concentrations of hydrogen peroxide may result in excessively weak biocidal activity, rendering the solution practically ineffective.
  • The anionic surfactants are preferably chosen from alkali metal, ammonium and ethanolamine salts of dodecyl benzene sulfonic acid, dodecyl sulfate, ethoxylated dodecyl sulfates, dioctyl sulfosuccinates and ethoxylated dodecyl sulfosuccinates. The preferred components are ammonium lauryl sulfate, disodium dioctyl sulfoccinate and disodium lauryl ether sulfosuccinate with 3 moles EO of ethoxylation. These ingredients are present in a total concentration of 0.5 to 8.0 w/w % of the total solution, with the preferred range being between 0.9 to 2.0 w/w %. These selected surfactants do not generally result in excessive drying of the skin or irritation and are preferably used in combination rather than singularly, as this is believed to result in less skin irritation.
  • The solution may contain a sufficient amount of buffers or other pH adjusting agents to adjust the pH to—and maintain the pH during storage in—the desired range, which is between about 1 and about 4.5, and preferably between about 2.5 and about 4.5. Examples of suitable buffers or other pH adjusting agents include weak organic or inorganic acids, such as citric or phosphoric acids. Alternatively, traditional strong basic pH adjusting agents (e.g. sodium or potassium hydroxide) can also be utilized in order to raise the pH of the mixture to the desired range.
  • To further enhance the biocidal activity of the solution, benzyl alcohol and/or a short chain C2-C6 alcohol may be utilized in a low enough concentration so as to not render the solution flammable, and to not give rise to a strong alcoholic odor. Particularly preferred short chain alcohols are C3-C8 aliphatic alcohols, and more particularly preferred are n-butanol and n-pentanol in concentrations of between about 2 and about 5 w/w %.
  • Additional optional ingredients include organic phosphorus-based hydrogen peroxide stabilizers (e.g. solutions sold by Solutia in association with the trade name Dequest™, or by Allbright and Wilson in association with the trade name Briquest™ A particularly preferred example is 1-hydroxyethylidene-1,1-diphosphonic acid available commercially as Briquest ADPA-60AW™ from Allbright and Wilson, or as Dequest 2010™ from Solutia. Of course, if the solution is to be used in jurisdictions which impose restrictions on phosphorus emissions, these ingredients may be replaced with phosphorous free stabilizers such as 8-hydroxyquinoline, stannates, citric acid, nitrilotriacetic acid, and ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid.
  • The solution may contain skin conditioning and moisturizing agents such as those hydrophobic materials widely known in the art (e.g. glycerin, glycerol, polyquarternium compounds, guar gums, and low hydrophile lyophile balance non-ionic surfactants). Gelling and other viscosity modifying agents can be employed, including cellulosic esters and ethers, acrylic polymers, biological polymers, and sodium chloride in combination with viscosity modifying surfactants. Finally, dyes and fragrances can be utilized to impart color or specific aromas.
  • The following are examples of embodiments for use in topical applications.
  • Example 10
  • Four antimicrobial solutions (Solutions 10a, 10b, 11a, and 11b) were prepared and evaluated for use in the control of mastitis. The solutions are summarized in Tables 10a and 11a below. The anionic surfactant Aerosol OT-25 is a disodium dioctyl sulfosuccinate manufactured by CYTEC Inc., while the Sipon LSB is a sodium lauryl sulfate manufactured by Henkel. The nonionic surfactant Neodol 91-6 manufactured by Shell is included for improving wetting and feel. Moisturizing is imparted by glycerin, sorbitol, while the viscosity was raised by using xantham gum (Keltrod RD manufactured by Kelco Biopolymers).

  • Solutions 10a and 10b were evaluated according to a suspension test similar to that described in the A.O.A.C. Method 960.09 (cited more completely above), except that the germicide solution was replaced with a mixture of the germicide solution and milk, at a milk concentration of 10 w/w %. The pass criteria is a Log10 reduction of greater than 5.0. Solution 10b is in accordance with the present invention. Solution 10a differs from Solution 10b in that the anionic surfactants were excluded. This experiment demonstrates that the absence of the anionic surfactants (in this case, sodium lauryl sulfate and dioctyl sulfosuccinate) results in a decrease in activity, even in the presence of close to a 2% active concentration of hydrogen peroxide, and an acid pH.
  • Example 11
  • Solutions 11a and 11b were prepared in accordance to the present invention and summarized in Table 11a below. These solutions contain additional surfactants for improved flash foam for dispensing as a wet foam. In this case, the solutions contain the anionic surfactants ammonium lauryl sulfate (Stepanol AM manufactured by Stepan) and disodium lauryl sulfosuccinate ethoxylated to 3 moles ethylene oxide (EO) (Stepan Mild SL3, manufactured by Stepan). Flash foam stability is provided by the amphoterics, cocoamidopropyl betaine (Mirataine C-30, manufactured by Stepan), and a non-ionic surfactant, lauramine oxide (Ammonyx LO, manufactured by Stepan). Skin emollients are also included, namely glycerin and the polymeric quaternary ammonium polymer, Polyquarternium 11 (manufactured by ISP). The solutions at 55% strength were tested in accordance with the A.O.A.C. 960.09 method and the results are shown in Table 11b below.
