Mode of Action:
Copper because of its strong bonding affinity to amino acids and carboxyl groups, reacts with protein and acts as enzyme inhibitor in target organisms. Therefore, Copper kills spores by combining with sulphahydral groups of certain enzymes. Spores actively accumulate copper and thus germination of spores is inhibited, even at lower concentrations.
