Propionic Acid, also known as propanoic acid, is a carboxylic acid normally found in nature, mainly in the form of its esters in some essential oils. This fatty acid is also formed in a number of enzymatic and fermentation processes. Widely used in the production of cellulose esters, plastic dispersions and herbicides, Propionic Acid has gained importance over the past years for applications related to preservation of forage cereals and animal feeds.
