Succinic Acid

(CAS: 110-15-6)

Succinic Acid also called Butanedioic Acid, a dicarboxylic acid of molecular formula C 4 H 6 O 4 that is widely distributed in almost all plant and animal tissues and that plays a significant role in intermediary metabolism. It is a colourless crystalline solid, soluble in water, with a melting point of 185C187 C (365C369 F).

Chemical Structure:

Succinic acid was first obtained as a distillation product of amber (Latin: succinum ), for which it is named. The common method of synthesis of succinic acid is the catalytic hydrogenation of maleic acid or its anhydride, although other methods are being used and investigated. Succinic acid has uses in certain drug compounds, in agricultural and food production, and in manufacturing.

History

Spirit of amber was procured from amber by pulverising and distilling it by a sand heat (a sand bath ; vessel filled with heated sand). It was chiefly used externally for rheumatic aches and pains, and internally in inveterate gleets .

Applications

? Food additive
? Disinfectant
? Corrosion inhibitor in Coolant systems
? Intermediate for preparation of pharmaceuticals
