Abstract:

Melamine is a versatile organic compound that has several industrial applications. This industrial chemical is widely used to produce polymer by reaction with formaldehyde. It is employed in manufacture of plastic, laminates, wares, floors and table tops, paints, adhesives, permanent-press fabrics, moulded furniture, foams and mattresses. It is also used as flame retardant, colorant in inks, concrete plasticizers, paper finishing, tarnish inhibitor, paper coating, textile finishes. However, in last decade this versatile industrial chemical emerged as a potential adulterant in protein rich feed, food and related ingredients and became serious threat to human health.
