Abstract:
The prevention of opportunistic infection for the elderly is important in home care and the hygiene management for infection is required. When water containing sodium chloride is electrolyzed, electrolyzed water with strong bactericidal ability due to the available chlorine (AC) is generated on the anode side. Slightly acidic to neutral electrolyzed water (SANEW, pH 5.0 to 7.5) is physiological pH and is suitable for biological applications. For producing SANEW simply and at a low cost, the container has electrolysis cell in a cylindrical shape having a sidewall without membrane partition and the sidewall serves as a cathode in the electrolyzer device. The graphite rod was used as the anode. As a result, the pH and AC concentration were 5.6 and 13.7 ppm, respectively. SANEW was obtained directly by this experimental device and this water showed a strong bactericidal activity. This device is useful for producing SANEW as a disinfectant to employ at home care, when considering economic and environmental factors, since it returns to ordinary water after use.
