Cefonicid sodium is a broadspectrum cephalosporin antibiotic which inhibits the formation of the bacterial cell wall. Studies suggest that Cefonicid sodium can inhibit the carnitine/carnitine antiport when it is added internally and externally to proteoliposomes. It is known that the molecule contains various electroactive groups that can be detected using adsorptive square-wave stripping voltammetry. In addition, the compound can be detected in solution using UV spectroscopy at 265 nm. Studies indicate that Cefonicid sodium is effective against Escherichia coli, Klebsiella, Citrobacter, Enterobacter, indole-negative Proteus, and Providencia.
