Title: Method of producing alkali metal salts or alkaline earth metal salts of 2,4-dichloro-6-hydroxy-s-triazine

Abstract: A method for producing alkali metal salts or alkaline earth metal salts of 2,4-dicloro-6-hydroxy-s-triazine, especially the sodium salt, by reacting cyanuric chloride with an alkali hydroxide or alkaline earth hydroxide. 1 to 2.5 Equivalents of alkali hydroxide or alkaline earth hydroxide per mole cyanuric chloride in the form of an aqueous solution or suspension are placed in a receiver and cyanuric chloride in powder form or in the form of an aqueous suspension is added while maintaining a pH in the range of 9.5 to 14 and cooling. If less than a stoichiometric amount is added to the receiver, the remaining amount of alkali hydroxide or alkaline earth hydroxide is added during and/or after the addition of cyanide chloride, while maintaining the pH. The method can be carried out on an industrial scale and formation of the salt of monochlorodihydroxytriazine is largely avoided.
