1. A method of utilizing a stabilized solution containing a silanol quaternary ammonium compound (SQAC) to reduce or eliminate microorganisms on a surface comprising:

  • mixing an anhydrous SQAC defined as 3-(trimethoxysilyl) propyl-N-octadecyl-N,N-dimethyl ammonium chloride with cedarwood oil to form a solution,diluting the solution to a desired aqueous concentration with demineralized water,producing an optically clear microemulsion that is stabilized from premature polymerization, andapplying the microemuision to a surface, allowing it to dry and cure to form a durable, antimicrobial coating to eliminate or inhibit the growth of microorganisms.
