Chlorine dioxide, a well established disinfectant
is the active ingredient in Aquamira® Water Purifier Tablets. Chlorine
dioxide is iodine and chlorine free. The unique formula works by
releasing nascent oxygen, a highly active form of oxygen, which is a
strong oxidant and a powerful germicidal agent. Chlorine dioxide has
been used by municipal water treatment plants to kill a variety of
waterborne pathogens since the late 1940s. Unlike free chlorine
(familiar as household bleach) or other halogen chemicals (such as
iodine), chlorine dioxide does not create potentially harmful
Aquamira’s key benefits are clearly evident when
compared to the other common portable water treatment chemical: iodine.
Most importantly, chlorine dioxide is a significantly stronger oxidant
than iodine, with greater pathogen killing power. Unlike iodine,
chlorine dioxide does not discolor water, nor does it give water an
unpleasant taste. In fact, chlorine dioxide is often used to improve the
taste of water by neutralizing unpleasant flavors.
