Abstract:

A TWO STEP PROCESS FOR THE STERILIZATION OF HEAT LIABLE GOODS IS PROPOSED IN WHICH THE OXIDATION STRENGTH OF A GAS OR VAPOR IS ENHANCED THROUGH A PHOTOCHEMICAL REACTION. THE PHOTOCHEMICAL REACTION PRODUCES A SHORT LIVED OXIDANT SPECIES WHICH DISINFECTS THE ITEM BUT LEAVES NO TOXIC RESIDUE BEHIND. THIS APPROACH HAS THE ADVANTAGE THAT LESS TOXIC MATERIALS THAN THE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE STERILIZING GASES CAN BE STORED AND HANDLED MORE SAFELY. THE MOST OXIDIZING FORM IS ONLY PRODUCED BY THE PHOTOCHEMICAL REACTION IN THE STERILIZING CHAMBER.
