4,5-dihydroxy-1,3-bis(hydroxymethyl)imidazolidin-2-one Usage And Synthesis

Uses

Dimethyloldihydroxy ethylene urea is a formaldehyde type of textile resin for "wash and wear" colored and white fabrics and shirtings, draperies and sheeting; chlorine resistant and stiffer than carbamates also used in paper.

General Description

Clear pale yellow 40% aqueous solution.

Air & Water Reactions

Water soluble.

Reactivity Profile

An alcohol and an amide. Flammable and/or toxic gases are generated by the combination of alcohols with alkali metals, nitrides, and strong reducing agents. They react with oxoacids and carboxylic acids to form esters plus water. Oxidizing agents convert them to aldehydes or ketones. Alcohols exhibit both weak acid and weak base behavior. They may initiate the polymerization of isocyanates and epoxides. Organic amides/imides react with azo and diazo compounds to generate toxic gases. Flammable gases are formed by the reaction of organic amides/imides with strong reducing agents. Amides are very weak bases (weaker than water). Imides are less basic yet and in fact react with strong bases to form salts. That is, they can react as acids. Mixing amides with dehydrating agents such as P2O5 or SOCl2 generates the corresponding nitrile. The combustion of these compounds generates mixed oxides of nitrogen (NOx).
