English term or phrase: PG-dimonium chlorate
this is an ingredient of baby wipes.
SD Translations
Spanish translation:PG-dimonio
Explanation:
PG is for propylene glycol and dimonium is correctly spelled. PG-dimonium; is usually the end of the molecule name the other being a fatty acid derivative for instance: ISOSTEARAMIDOPROPYL PG-DIMONIUM CHLORIDE = cloruro de isoestearamidopropil PG-dimonio or COCAMIDOPROPYL PG-DIMONIUM CHLORIDE PHOSPHATE = cloruro y fosfato de cocamidopropil PG-dimonio. What is surprising is the inclusion of chlorate (clorato) and not chloride (cloruro) in the formula.

check the spelling


Explanation:
It might be diammonium or dimmonium. I have used diammonium phospate in works about fertilizers. I have not found any instance of a dimonium chlorate. If one follows the xlation of diammonium phospate, fosfato diamónico, then one could probably use clorato dimónico or clorato diamónico if it is an existing compound. I would check the spelling and the source.
¡La mejor de las suertes!

clorato diamónico or clorato de diamonia


Explanation:
Either one is technically correct, but clorato diamónico is more commonly used.
Since in your case the topic is baby diapers, PG must stand for Procter & Gamble, a leading manufacturer of baby diapers

Propilen-glicol cloruro di-amónico


Explanation:
The chemical name in English is incorrect. This compound can't be in chlorate form. The word 'dimonium' seems to be missing the 'a'. Most organic Chemistry textbooks indicate that the chemical structure doesn't fit for chlorate.
