Dichloroisocyanuric acid, also known as dichlor or dichloro-s-triazinetrione and is marketed under many names (e.g. troclosene), is a chemical compound with the formula (C(O)NCl)2(C(O)NH).
- (C(O)NH)3 + 2 Cl2 → (C(O)NCl)2(C(O)NH) + 2 HCl
It is a colourless solid.
Mechanism of action
The sodium salt of dichloroisocyanuric acid, sodium dichloroisocyanurate, is the active ingredient in bleach. It is the active ingredient in many commercial disinfectant bacteriocides, algicides, and cleaning agents., for example the powderized cleanser Comet.
