Properties: Liquid. Acrid, offensive odor. Has been obtained cryst, mp about 50°, bp 61-62° (decompn). Reacts violently on contact with water, forming ammonium chloride and carbon dioxide. During storage it gives off HCl and slowly changes to cyanuric acid.
Melting point: mp about 50°
Boiling point: bp 61-62° (decompn)
