Armenian scientists of Institute of Chemical Physics after A.B. Nalbandyan have created a Bioxil-2 disinfectant as an effective mean to fight COVID-19.
Bioxil-2 is a disinfectant and detergent based on a composite, effective, chlorine-free, active oxygen, the National Academy of Sciences told Armenpress.
“A concentration of 0.5% pure hydrogen peroxide eliminates coronavirus. In our Bioxil-2, the content of hydrogen peroxide is 5 times higher - 2%. It also contains hydrogen peroxide activators that increase the effect of hydrogen peroxide tens of times," said Levon Tavadyan, Academician-Secretary of the Department of Chemistry and Earth Sciences of the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia.
The disinfectant has been tested in the Disinfection Center CJSC and the National Center for Fighting Tuberculosis SNCO, as well as in enterprises producing varied types of food.
The Institute donated Bioxil-2 to the ministry of emergency situations for preventive measures.
