This seems a very interesting characteristic. What about its storage?

I have found cyanuric acid (2,4,6 trihydroxy - 1,3,5 triazine), its price is
about 0.1 euro/g. For comparison, glutaraldehyde is 0.14-0.2 E/g and glyoxal
is 1.6 E/g (both referred to the pure substance).
May you share your operational details for the synthesis of 2,4

One thing at a time... but I am ever curious.
