3-Hydroxypropionic Acid (a.k.a. 3-HP) is an important feedstock for the biochemical industry. This compound is a 3-carbon carboxylic acid, structural isomer of lactic acid, which naturally exists in some thermophilic archaea and bacteria. This organic compound has been pointed out by the US Department of Energy as a promising biomass derivate, which could potentially be used for the production of high added-value chemicals like 1,3-propanediol, acrylic acid, acrylamide, and bioplastics.
