Efficacy of Chlorine Dioxide as a Disinfectant for Bacillus spores in Drinking Water Biofilms
Hosni, A., J. G. SZABO, AND P. Bishop. Efficacy of Chlorine Dioxide as a Disinfectant for Bacillus spores in Drinking Water Biofilms . JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING. American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Reston, VA, 137(7):569-574, (2011).
In this paper, the hypothesis that chlorine dioxide disinfects Bacillus spores in the biofilm/corrosion matrix better than free chlorine was tested. Results with chlorine dioxide were compared with those presented earlier by Szabo et al. (2007). Furthermore, a micro-slicing technique was performed prior to disinfection to investigate the distribution of B. globigii spores throughout the biofilm/corrosion depth. Micro-slicing was also employed during disinfection to monitor the effect of chlorine dioxide on adhered spores with depth.
