Blocking Effect of HOCl on Adhesion of Marine Microbes
In this manuscript, we systematically investigated the effect of hypochlorous acid on adhesion of biofouling marine bacteria and diatom utilizing the sea water antifouling electrolysis method. Results showed that when current density was 20 mA/cm2, HClO could block 99.98% of the adhesion of marine bacteria after 3 days, 100% of diatom adhesion after 7 days and 97.28% of diatom adhesion after 70 days of 8h/ day electrolysis, suggesting that hypochlorous acid could effectively block the adhesion of marine bacteria and diatom.
