Most of Adipic Acid is used captively by the producer in the manufacture of nylon-6,6 polyamide, prepared by reaction with 1,6-hexanediamine. The remaining of Adipic Acid production is sold in the merchant market, for a wide range of applications. In this context, Adipic Acid may be converted to esters, further used in plasticizers, lubricants and in polyurethane resins; added to gelatins and jams as an acidulant; added to foods as a buffering or neutralizing agent, insect repellent, starch crosslinking agent, baking powders and intermediate for paints.

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.
