Vital Oxide kills microbes by chemically altering certain amino acids that contain sulfur. Amino acids are important building blocks in the proteins that help to form cell walls. When these proteins are destroyed, the cell wall ruptures and the organism dies. In this chemical reaction Vital Oxide takes on an electron from the amino acid and reverts back to a chlorite ion then the amino acid gives up an electron - giving up an electron is what chemists call oxidation. Below are links for more information on Vital Oxide.
