Long-term immersion and electrochemical corrosion tests help in identifying appropriate material of construction for handling peracid bleach media of lower pH.
[.sup.1.H]-NMR spectroscopy showed that the oxazoline ring was unaffected by the peracid. The oxazoline could also be used to functionalize an acrylic and could then be epoxidized in high yields, with excess epoxidizing agent.
The most intense bands were found at 1790 [cm.sup.-1] (carbonyl, peracid), 1763 [cm.sup.-1] (carbonyl, perester), 1740 [cm.sup.-1] (carbonyl, ester), 1728 [cm.sup.-1] (carbonyl, aldehyde), 1715 [cm.sup.-1] (carbonyl, ketone), 1705 [cm.sup.-1] (carbonyl, acid), and 3200-3700 [cm.sup.-1] (composite band assigne to both hydroperoxide and hydroxyl groups).
More importantly, peracid is a color-safe bleach, making it ideal for clothing and fabrics unlike other Oxi products, which use different cleaning agents and may cause damage to your favorite pieces.
To test the robustness of the method, several combinations of sample size and peracid addition amounts were used.
7,935,667 B2; Solutions BioMed, LLC, Orem, UT, has patented an aqueous disinfectant or sterilant composition that is comprised of an aqueous vehicle, including water, peracid and a peroxide, wherein the peroxide includes a peroxyhydrate; as well as a colloidal transition metal or alloy thereof based on the aqueous vehicle content.
Mixed peracids represent the most recent advance in sanitizing technology for the brewery industry.
