What is hydantoin?

hydantoin structure

Hydantoins, is a heterocyclic organic compound with the formula CH2C(O)NHC(O)NH. It is a colorless solid that arises from the reaction of glycolic acid and urea. It is an oxidized derivative of imidazolidine. In a more general sense, hydantoins can refer to a groups and a class of compounds with the same ring structure as the parent.

When combined with bromine and chlorine, dimethylhydantoin forms the derivative bromo-chloro-dimethylhydantoin, or BCDMH, a compound frequently used as a disinfectant. It demonstrates biocidal properties against a wide range of pathogens, including bacteria, fungi, viruses, and yeast. BCDMH is frequently used as a sanitizer in breweries and drinking water purification plants. It might also be used to disinfect the water in swimming pools, hot tubs, or spas. The hydantoin derivative, dibromo-dimethlyhydantoin, or DBDMH, may be used as a bleaching agent in paper mills in addition to its use for water purification.
