Sulfadimidine or sulfamethazine is a sulfonamide antibacterial.

There are non-standardizeda abbreviations for it as "sulfadimidine" (abbreviated SDI[1][2] and more commonly but less reliablyb SDD[3][4]) and as "sulfamethazine" (abbreviated SMT[5][6] and more commonly but less reliablyc SMZ[7][8]). Other names include sulfadimerazine, sulfadimezine, and sulphadimethylpyrimidine.


  • ^a Abbreviations are not found in the databases (such as ChemDB, ChemIDplus, PubChem), but often seen in the published literature.[citation needed]
  • ^b "SDD" is not found in databases, but often seen in the published literature; it could however be confused with Tiferron/Sodium catechol sulfate (1,2-Dihydroxybenzene-3,5-disulfonic acid disodium Salt), uncommon but found officially abbreviated SDD in the ChemIDplus database.[9]
  • ^c "SMZ" is not found in databases, but often seen in the published literature; it could however be confused with sulfamethoxazole, also seen abbreviated SMZ.[citation needed]
