The Principle of Action of Wood Mold Inhibitor 4917-04-4

The effect of wood mold inhibitor 4917-04-4 on mold is achieved through two aspects.

  1.   Inhibit the growth and reproduction of mold, so that the number of molds increases at a reduced rate.
  2.   Kill individual molds and reduce the absolute number of molds in the system.

The former is called bacteriostatic or bacteriostatic. That is, the growth of individual molds is blocked under the action of wood fungicides. So that it can only maintain the survival of the individual, but not to grow and develop. Thereby reducing the number of mold in the system. The latter is called sterilization. It is the process of the death of microbial individuals that cannot maintain normal physiological activities due to the interaction between wood antifungal agents and fungal molecules such as life molecules. Bacteriostatic and bactericidal effects are relatively relative, often related to the concentration of the agent. When the concentration of the agent is high, it shows a killing effect on the microorganisms; when it is treated at a low concentration, it shows an inhibitory effect on the microorganisms.

After the wood is treated with the mold inhibitor 4917-04-4, the 4917-04-4 can be contacted with the outer membrane of the mold cell and adsorbed. Then it enters the protoplast through the cell membrane and acts on a certain part of the microbial cell. Inhibit or change the growth, reproduction, ready-made spores, spore germination, spore swelling, mitosis of cells, and other physiological, biochemical and metabolic activities. The final performance is to inhibit the growth and reproduction of wood microorganisms and even kill the microorganisms.

The role of wood mold inhibitor 4917-04-4 can be roughly divided into two types.

It acts on various metabolic mechanisms essential for maintaining microbial cell life, such as cell wall synthesis, cell membrane function, protein synthesis, nucleic acid synthesis, energy metabolism, etc.

Or act on various enzyme systems related to these metabolic mechanisms.
