A group of broad-spectrum antimicrobial agents or biocides that are able to kill a wide range of micro-organisms by damaging their cell walls. The most common example with dental applications is chlorhexidine gluconate. Chlorhexidine gluconate adsorbs onto oral surfaces and thus has a prolonged or residual effect (substantivity).
