INTRODUCTION

Denatonium is one of the most bitter chemical compounds known and is usually available as  Denatonium Benzoate [DB] and Denatonium Saccharide with bitterness thresholds of 0.05 ppm for the benzoate and 0.01 ppm for the saccharide. They are used as aversive agents (bitterants) to prevent inappropriate ingestion.

The repulsive taste of denatonium can be used as a deterrent on products not designed for consumption and/or are harmful upon consumption.

Permethrin is an insecticide in the pyrethroid chemical family. Being a neurotoxic synthetic pyrethroid, it acts on the nervous system of insects. It interferes with sodium channels to disrupt the function of neurons and causes muscles to spasm, culminating in paralysis and death of arthropod. It affects sodium transport across the neuronal membranes in arthropods, thus causing depolarization. It is a mixture of a cis -trans isomer.
