Cyanuric (isocyanuric) acids: N-Chlorination of Cyanuric acid at the R1, R2,
and R3 sites yields chloroisocyanurates that are used as disinfectants (in swimming
pools and hot-tubs), sanitizers (in household cleansers and automatic dishwashing
compounds), and bleaches (in both the industrial and household bleaching of fabrics).
The most common chloroisocyanurates are Trichloro and Dichloro isocyanuric acid
(TCCA, DCCA) and Sodium dichloroisocyanuric acid (SDCC).
Triallyl isocyanurate (R1, R2, and R3 = propenyl) is used as a crosslinking agent for poly(vinyl chloride) and other systems.
Methylamine (also on the metapathway map) and N-substituted methylamines are sometimes used as finishing agents for textiles.
|Nitramine explosives: Cyclotrimethylenetrinitramine (RDX) is an explosive and a propellant used in military rockets. RDX is degraded both aerobically and anaerobically by microorganisms.|
|Triazone: A cyclic urea used as a cross linking agent in textile finishing. 1,3-dimethylol-5-alkyltriazone is still widely used for this purpose. Cross linking agents are used in the preparation of textiles to induce "memory" and to add luster.|
