Chemistry of Trichloroisocyanuric Acid
After hydrolysis in water, tcca will be converted to hypochlorous acid (hocl),which has strong microbial activity. The hydrolysis by product, cyanuric acid,acts as a stabilizer and prevents conversion of hypochlorous acid into hypochloriteion (ocl-) owing to sunshine and heat, which has low microbial activity.
