Chemical Description

  • 2,2-Dibromo-3-Nitrilopropionamide (DBNPA) is an efficient and fast-acting biocide known for its broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties. With the chemical formula C3H2Br2N2O, DBNPA appears as a white to off-white crystalline powder. It is recognized for its rapid action against bacteria, fungi, and algae, which makes it a preferred choice for various industrial applications.
  • DBNPA is extensively used in the water treatment industry for controlling microbial growth in industrial water systems, cooling towers, and paper mills. Its fast action and effectiveness at low concentrations help in maintaining the microbiological quality of water, preventing biofouling, and reducing the risk of microbial-induced corrosion.
  • In the paper and pulp industry, DBNPA serves as a preservative, preventing the growth of microorganisms in paper products and during the paper production process. This application ensures the longevity and quality of paper products while reducing the downtime and maintenance costs associated with microbial contamination.
  • DBNPA is also employed in the oil and gas industry as a biocide in hydraulic fracturing fluids and drilling muds. Its rapid antimicrobial action helps in preventing the growth of sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) and other harmful microorganisms that can compromise the integrity of oilfield equipment and reservoirs.
  • The chemical manufacturing and processing sectors utilize DBNPA as a preservative in various products, including adhesives, coatings, and latex emulsions. Its addition to formulations protects these products from microbial degradation, extending their shelf life and ensuring consistent performance.
  • In agriculture, DBNPA is used as a soil fumigant and pesticide, offering protection against soil-borne pathogens and pests. This application contributes to improved crop yields and quality by reducing the impact of diseases and infestations.
  • DBNPA is an attractive option for sustainable and effective microbial control.
  • Despite its effectiveness, DBNPA should be handled with care due to its potential irritant properties. Proper safety measures, including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), are recommended during its handling and application.DBNPA's mode of action involves the disruption of microbial cell functions, leading to rapid cell death. This mechanism, combined with its low persistence in the environment and minimal risk of developing microbial resistance, makes
