Abstract

Substance such as PVP-iodine has been known for almost 50 years and has been used very successfully for over 40 years as a local broad-spectrum antiseptic. At first sight, it might appear that it requires no further discussion. However, as a result of work in this field, it has become necessary to investigate the particular and possibly surprising properties of PVP-iodine solutions. Some authors considered the role of free non-complex iodine in the effectiveveness of PVP-iodine solutions. In aqueous solutions containing polymers with iodophor properties, the chemistry of iodine is complex, since macromolecules interact with iodine forms
