ISES Webinar -Increased Exposure to Commonly Used Disinfectants during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs or “quats”) are a class of chemicals used as disinfectants in cleaning and other consumer products. While disinfection is recommended for maintaining a safe environment during the COVID-19 pandemic, the increased use of QACs is concerning as exposure to these compounds has been associated with adverse effects on reproductive and respiratory systems. In this talk, Dr. Amina Salamova will present the results of her work on determining the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the QAC indoor exposure and body burden. This is the first comprehensive study on the indoor exposure and biomonitoring of the three major QAC groups and the results provide valuable information for future epidemiological, toxicological, and risk assessment studies targeting this class of compounds.
