DBNPA or 2,2-dibromo-3-nitrilopropionamide is a quick-kill biocide that easily hydrolyzes under both acidic and alkaline conditions. It is preferred for its instability in water as it quickly kills and then quickly degrades to form a number of products, depending on the conditions, including ammonia, bromide ions, dibromoacetonitrile, and dibromoacetic acid. DBNPA acts similar to the typical halogen biocides.
DBNPA is used in a wide variety of applications. Some examples are in papermaking as a preservative in paper coatingand slurries. It is also used as slime control on papermachines, and as a biocide in hydraulic fracturing wells and in cooling water.
Their wide application in water treatment plants and paper, oil as well as oil and gas industries is an example of their popularity in the market.
