Bronidox, or 5-bromo-5-nitro-1,3-dioxane, is an antimicrobial chemical compound.
Bronidox causes inhibition of enzyme activity in bacteria.
Bronidox is corrosive to metals.
- Fungicide, effective against yeast and other fungi
- It is used in immunology for preserving antibodies and antisera in 0.1 - 0.5% concentration. It is used as preservative to avoid use of sodium azide.
- Used in cosmetics since the mid-1970s as preservative for shampoos, foam bath, etc. Maximum concentration is 0.1%.
- Some users do not recommend use in preparations destined for in vivo or tissue culture work
