Hexanedioic Acid
Bio-Adipic Acid
Adipic Acid (a.k.a. Hexanedioic Acid, Bio-Adipic Acid) is one of the most important aliphatic dicarboxylic acids, with about 2.5 billion kilograms being produced per year. It is isolated as odorless, colorless crystals having an acidic taste. Adipic Acid undergoes the reactions of carboxylic acids, reacting at one or both carboxylic acid groups to form salts, esters, amides, nitriles, etc. Actually, because of the bifunctional nature of this acid, it is used in a number of industrial polymerization processes.
The uses and applications of Adipic Acid may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Adipic Acid are technical grade (99.5% minimum purity) and Food Chemical Codex grade (FCC, 99.6% minimum purity).
