Information On Zinc Chloride From Wikipedia

Zinc chloride is the name of chemical compounds with the formula ZnCl2 and its hydrates. Zinc chlorides, of which nine crystalline forms are known, are colorless or white, and are highly soluble in water. ZnCl2 itself is hygroscopic and even deliquescent. Samples should therefore be protected from sources of moisture, including the water vapor present in ambient air. Zinc chloride finds wide application in textile processing, metallurgical fluxes, and chemical synthesis. No mineral with this chemical composition is known aside from the very rare mineral simonkolleite, Zn5(OH)8Cl2·H2O.

More Information From Wikipedia On Zinc Chloride

Zinc Chloride For Viruses

The idea that zinc could be used to treat the common cold originated from a 1974 paper in Nature which showed that zinc blocks the replication of rhinoviruses in cell culture. Viral plaque formation was inhibited over 99% when 0.1 millimolar zinc chloride was included in the agar overlay.

Information On Zinc Chloride From PubChem

Zinc Chloride is an ionic salt essential for the synthesis of cholesterol, protein, and fats. Zinc plays an important role in the proper functioning of the immune system. Zinc is required for the enzyme activities necessary for cell division, cell growth, and wound healing as well as the release of vitamin A from the liver. It plays a role in the acuity of the senses of smell and taste and is required to maintain prostate reproductive health and insulin function. Zinc is also involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates. Zinc chloride is administered orally or parenterally as a nutritional supplement. Zinc chloride, solution is a colorless liquid. It is mildly corrosive to metals. It causes burns to eyes, skin and mucous membranes. Read more here.

Uses Of Zinc Chloride

Zinc Chloride For Teeth

During a 14-day test period a 0.2% and a 0.4% zinc chloride solution have been examined concerning their antibacterial efficiency on the total streptococcus flora of dental plaque under conditions conforming to standard by means of the Mylar foil technique. The results of the microbiological examination show a significant decrease of colony developing units of the plaque streptococci by a 7-day mouth rinsing with zinc chloride solution. The lesser antimicrobial effect of the zinc chloride solution compared with a 0.2% chlorhexidine solution is not proved statistically in the test period. A 0.2% or 0.4% zinc chloride solution could complete the mechanical dental and oral hygiene in an effective way.

Zinc is another trace mineral, and can naturally be found in saliva. It has been proven to fight against the growth of bacteria and plaque, which can decay teeth and gum tissues, causing cavities and gum disease. 

Zinc Chloride For Hair Growth

Zinc plays an important role in hair tissue growth and repair. It also helps keep the oil glands around the follicles working properly. Hair loss is a common symptom of zinc deficiency. Bottom Line: The mineral zinc can improve hair growth in people who are deficient in it.

Zinc Chloride For Canker Sores And Mouth Ulcers

Orajel is an over the counter medication used to relieve mouth pain. Oragel Mouth Sore Gel contains 3 ingredients: benzocaine, benzalkonium, and zinc chloride. Benzocaine belongs to a group of drugs called pain reliever. It works to numb the affected area. Benzalkonium belongs to a group of drugs called antiseptic which cleanses the area. Zinc chloride belongs to a group of drugs called astringent. It works to constrict the tissue. This medication comes in a gel and is applied four times a day. Common side effects of Orajel Mouth Sore Gel include burning, stinging, and itching.

Zinc Chloride For Skin

Zinc Chloride is a white crystalline solid. Zinc Chloride induces a tightening or tingling sensation of the skin and helps to cleanse the skin or to prevent odor by destroying or inhibiting the growth of microorganisms.

Is Zinc Chloride Safe For Dogs? 

If your pet ingests a topical cream containing zinc, you may not need to worry unless it was ingested multiple times or in large amounts. However, certain types of topical medications (e.g., skin cancer or psoriasis treatments) can be very dangerous – or even deadly - to pets.

Antiviral Activity Of Zinc Salts Against Transmissible Gastroenteritis Virus In Vitro

Zinc has been shown to mediate antiviral effects against certain viruses. However, the underlying mechanisms are still largely unknown. We investigated the effects of the two zinc salts, zinc chloride (ZnCl(2)) and zinc sulfate (ZnSO(4)), on infection of swine testicle (ST) cells with transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV) and compared it to the effects of a control salt, magnesium sulfate (MgSO(4)). Virus yield reduction experiments showed that ZnCl(2) and ZnSO(4) did not exhibit direct virucidal effects and did not affect adsorption of TGEV to ST cells. However, ZnCl(2) and ZnSO(4) markedly reduced viral titers as well as TGEV RNA and viral protein synthesis when applied during virus penetration and at different time points after viral cell entry. The results of the study suggest that zinc salts do not interfere with TGEV-cell binding but that they mediate antiviral effects through inhibition of viral penetration or egress or the intracellular phase of the viral life-cycle.

Zinc Chloride For Bad Breath

In its aqueous state, such as in a mouthwash, zinc chloride neutralizes the odor caused by bad breath germs for long-lasting fresh breath. It also works by controlling the growth of bad breath bacteria. It is also used in other temporary breath fresheners such as mints, sprays, lozenges and even chewing gum.

Zinc Inhibits Rhinovirus Replication

The title of this post should not come as a surprise to readers of virology blog – it was shown in 1974 that zinc could interfere with replication of rhinoviruses (see “Zinc and the common cold“). I am referring to the result of my first experiment to study the mechanism of zinc inhibition – something I promised I would document on these pages.

I am interested in understanding how zinc inhibits rhinovirus replication. Answering this question could lead to new ways to prevent common colds caused by these viruses. The first step was to reproduce the effect of zinc in my laboratory with my stocks of rhinovirus. I selected rhinovirus type 1a for my initial experiments because we’ve worked with this serotype in the past: we know the genome sequence and how the virus behaves in a mouse model. I started by doing a plaque assay with and without zinc in the medium. I prepared tenfold dilutions of virus and inoculated separate monolayers of HeLa cells with 2000, 200, and 20 plaque forming units. After allowing the virus to attach to cells for 45 minutes, I added an agar overlay to the cells with or without zinc chloride (ZnCl2). I selected 0.1 millimolar ZnCl2 because that is the concentration which had been reported to effectively inhibit plaque formation by rhinovirus type 1a. The plates were incubated for four days at 32°C and then stained. The results are shown in the photo. Plaque assays are typically done in duplicate but for simplicity only one plate of each dilution is shown.

Twenty plaques were observed on the highest dilution of virus plated in the absence of ZnCl2. Ten-fold lower dilutions produced increases in plaque number, although the plaques are too numerous to count. In the presence of ZnCl2, no plaques were observed on cells inoculated with 20 PFU. A few plaques are observed on the intermediate dilution and many more on the lowest dilution. Plaques observed in the presence of ZnCl2 are smaller than those observed in the absence of the metal.

Zinc: A Potential Antiviral Against Hepatitis E Virus Infection?

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is a major cause of viral hepatitis worldwide. Owing to its feco oral transmission route, sporadic as well as epidemic outbreaks recurrently occur. No specific antiviral therapy is available against the disease caused by HEV. Broad spectrum antivirals such as ribavirin and interferon alfa are prescribed in severe and chronic HEV cases. However, the side effects, cost, and limitations of usage render the available treatment unsuitable for several categories of patients. We recently reported the ability of zinc to inhibit viral replication in mammalian cell culture models of HEV infection. Zinc will be a safe and economical antiviral therapy option if it inhibits HEV replication during the natural course of infection. This essay discusses the putative mechanism(s) by which zinc inhibits HEV replication and provides an overview of the possible therapeutic potential of zinc in HEV patients.

What Is The Physical State Of Zinc Chloride?
