Butanedioic Acid
Succinic Acid (a.k.a. SA, Butanedioic Acid) is an important chemical, traditionally derived from petroleum feedstocks. It is used in several areas - from high-value niche applications, such as food and pharmaceuticals, to large-volume applications, such as plasticizers, resins and coatings. However, the current market for Succinic Acid is limited to specialized areas because of its costly production process.
The uses and applications of Succinic Acid may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Succinic Acid are industrial grade; pharmaceutical grade; and food grade.
