Ammelide (AMD), a 1,3,5-triazine compound, is one of the hydrolysis by-products of melamine. It is most commonly found as an impurity in melamine and its structural analog, cyanuric acid feedstocks.
Ammelide can be synthesized via hydrolysis of 2-amino-4,6-dichloro-s-triazine in the presence of acid or base or by the reaction between urea and cyanogen iodide at 130-140 degrees.
Ammelide may be used as an analytical reference standard for the determination of the analyte in milk, milk products and infant formula using chromatography techniques.
