Antiseptics and disifenctants are the first line agents with the ability to interrupt the spread of potential pathogens. A plethora of chemical agents are available to be used alone or as part of a formulation. Among them, surfactants consist in a group of molecules with diverse chemical structures sharing an amphiphilic nature: a polar group and a hydrophobic moiety. This characteristic is responsible for their tensioactive properties. Altough the antimicrobial activity of arginine-based surfactants has been extensively reported against planktonic cultures, information about their antibiofilm activity is generally scarce.
