Main Article Content
Chemical processes that could occur in the anode chamber of an electrolytic cell divided by a semi-permeable membrane when direct current passes through a water solution of weak mineralization are described. The interest concerns the possibility of a formation of chemical substances with strong oxidative action as O2 and H2O2, due to nascent oxygen. These substances can destroy the structure of pathogenic bacteria and viruses. The preservation of these properties for a long period of time without specific storage requirements makes the anolyte cheap and effective disinfection and therapeutic means.
