The effects of pH and indirect ultrasonication on the cidal activity of aqueous and alcoholic solutions of chlorhexidine gluconate against Bacillus subtilis spores were examined. At moderately elevated temperatures, increasing pH enhanced sporicidal activity. pH markedly enhanced the sporicidal activity between indirect ultrasound and chlorhexidine. 'Alcoholic' chlorhexidine gluconate was more sporicidal than its aqueous counterpart.
