Characterization of UV-peroxide killing of bacterial spores

Characterization of UV-peroxide killing of bacterial spores

Journal of Food Protection 66(7): 1233-1240

Advantage is taken in many sterilization processes, especially for food packaging materials, of the synergy between H2O2 and UV irradiation for spore killing. The nature of the synergy is currently not well defined in terms of targets and mechanisms.
