Applications

Glutaraldehyde is commonly used in the medical industry in cold sterilization and in the X-ray development process. It can also be encountered in the leather industry as a tanning ingredient and in mortuary workers. There are no reports which indicate that glutaraldehyde is a naturally occurring compound. Cidex and Acusol, 2% buffered solutions, use this aldehyde as an active ingredient. Sodium bicarbonate is required to activate the solution, which then has a shelf life of 1–2 weeks. Despite health hazards involved with its use, glutaraldehyde is one of the most effective biocides used. It is particularly effective against bacteria and viruses, including the human immunodeficiency virus.
