- Isothiazolinone(cmit mit)
Sterilization principle of Isothiazolinones
Isothiazolinone is mainly composed of 5-chloro-2-methyl-4-isothiazoline-3-ketone(CMIT) and 2-methyl-4-isothiazoline-3-ketone(MIT). Isothiazolinone kills bacteria by breaking the bonds of bacteria and algae proteins. Isothiazolinone can rapid irreversibly inhibit microorganisms growth after contact with them. That reaction results in the death of microorganisms cells. For this reason, isothiazolinone has strong inhibition and sterilization effect on common fungus and algae.
Methyl Isothiazolinone (MIT) is a high effective biocide and heat-resisting water-based preservatives. Methyl Isothiazolinone has good effect on inhibiting growth of mold, bacteria and fungus. It also can be directly put in personal care products, cosmetics, coatings, pulp and other fields.
Methyl isothiazolinone is used as preservative in some cleaning products, including some green cleaning products. Such as detergent, cleansing cream, universal quick cleanser, glass cleaner, floor cleaner, countertop panel spray Detergents, linen detergents, room sprays, air fresheners, carpet cleaners and wet wipes. Beyond that, it is important to note that Methyl Isothiazolinone is often used in combination with another synthetic preservative, benzisothiazolinone(BIT).
