Sodium Dichloroisocyanurate Properties

Sodium Dichloroisocyanurate

Molecule Structure Image



Sodium dichloroisocyanurate is a chemical compound used as a disinfectant, biocide, industrial deodorant and detergent. It is found in some newer water purification tablets/filters. It is more efficient than formerly used halazone water disinfectant. Mechanism of action is the release of chlorine in low concentrations by constant rate. As a kind of disinfectant, it can sterilize drinking water, swimming pools, tableware and air, fight against infectious diseases as routine disinfection, preventive disinfection and environmental sterilization in different places, act as disinfectant in raising silkworm, livestock, poultry and fish, and also can be used to prevent wool from shrinking, bleaching textiles and cleaning industrial circulating water.
