The science behind electro-activation is known as managed and balanced electrolysis, and it works by exposing an aqueous solution to the actions of an exterior electrical field in an electrochemical reactor. The primary feature of electrochemically activated aqueous solutions (ECAAS) is that whenever they are confined to unipolar electrochemical influencing factors with specific properties, a metastable state occurs, i.e., electrochemically activated compounds, providing them with distinctive ecological, physiological, chemical, biological, and specifically microbiological features that none of the presently accredited chemicals like pharmaceutical industries, biocides, and cosmetic products have.The catholyte has elevated electron activity and reducing qualities, whereas the anolyte has decreased electron activity and noticeable oxidant qualities. The anolytes’ low oxidant concentration results in relatively minimal chemical buffering, which contributes to ecological sustainability. The wide-spectrum antibacterial action of electrochemical activation solutions has been demonstrated, and given their inexpensive raw material costs and simple synthesis (in-situ or remotely), they hold great promise for widespread use in many sectors including healthcare. The benefits of the ECAAS have given rise to its widespread use in a variety of fields, including those related to human beings and veterinary medicine, the food sector,defence, wagons, ships, aircraft disinfection, etc.The emphasis of this review is on the many applications and most current developments of electro-activated solutions across different industries.
