Englewood Cliffs, NJ, has patented a cleansing composition that contains a surfactant (soap); an oligodynamic
metal selected from the group consisting of silver, oxide, silver nitrate, silver acetate, silver sulfate, silver benzoate, silver salicylate, silver carbonate, silver citrate or silver phosphate; and a chelating agent.

Olarte explained that silver is an oligodynamic
metal, whose metal ions kill and inhibit the growth of fungi, bacteria and other microbes.

effect of metals on biological systems (including the antimicrobial properties) was already described in 1893 by Nageli (Nageli 1893).
Tenders are invited for Supply Delivery, erection and commissioning of Water Disinfection Equipment using Silver Ionisation process based on Oligodynamic
technology suitable to provide directly to pumping main or to Over Head Tank for 9 Nos of IPP Schemes
Inorganic antimicrobials utilise the oligodynamic
effect for efficacy against microorganisms.
property of silver ions binding to both microbial DNA preventing bacterial replication and to sulfhydryl groups of metabolic enzymes of bacterial electron transport chain, causing their inactivation  is responsible for its broad spectrum antimicrobial activity.
The recognition of the anti-microbial activity of oligodynamic
metals such as silver has been a basis for the development of many anti-microbial processes and products.
Hence, the preference of the community for copper wire (Table 5) can be attributed to its antibacterial (also reflected in our data) and oligodynamic
action (17-20), its affordability, traditional usage, and relative zero-maintenance and effort involved.
Also, gold's oligodynamic
surface properties inhibit the growth of bacteria.
com/research/6ceaf7/the_bactericidal_a) has announced the addition of the "The Bactericidal and Oligodynamic
Action of Silver and Copper in Hygiene, Medicine and Water Treatment" report to their offering.
