Bronopol is an antimicrobial agent which strongly inhibits the growth of gram negative and gram positive bacteria. It is also responsible in eliminating the growth of pseudomonas such as pseudomonas aeruginosa. It is a solid, white in color but appears to be yellow in commercial samples. The melting point of Bronopol is about 103 degree celcius and it is reported to undergo lattice rearrangement at 100 to 150 degree celcius. Above 140 degree celcius, bronopol, by exothermal decomposition, releases oxides of nitrogen and hydrogen bromide. Bronopol is also known by the other names such as 2 Bromo 2 nitro 1, 3 Propanediol, Bronopol BP and Bronosol among others. Bronopol is often combined with other antimicrobials to control molds and yeasts. Certain blends of parabens and bronopol provide excellent coverage of all microbial spectra. Bronopol is known to be a versatile product once it combined with anionic, cationic and amphoteric surfactants. Bronopol is soluble in polar solvents such as isopropanol, propylene glycol and water. Bronopol breaks down under elevated temperatures and alkaline conditions. It should not be used with secondary amines as this would lead to undesired chemical reaction and formation of nitrosamines. Bronopol produce low levels of formaldehyde under extreme alkaline conditions.
Bronopol is manufactured by a process of brominating di-nitromethane, which is derived from nitromethane by a nitrodiol reaction. The major application areas for bronopol are as a preservative agent in pharmaceutical, cosmetics, toiletries and household products among others. It is also used in various products and processes.
