Iodophors

(Science: chemical) complexes of iodine and non-ionic surface-active agent acting as carrier and solubilizing agent for the iodine in water. Iodophors usually enhance bactericidal activity of iodine, reduce vapor pressure and odour, minimise staining, and allow wide dilution with water.

Pharmacological action: anti-infective agents, local.
