About Propionic Acid. 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.

On an industrial scale, Propionic Acid can be produced, mainly, by carbonylation of ethylene and oxidation of propionaldehyde, and as byproduct from hydrocarbons oxidation.

Propionic Acid Handling. Classified as corrosive, pure Propionic Acid can be stored in containers made of aluminum (with a purity of 99.5 %) or alloyed steels. This acid may also be temporarily stored in polyethylene containers and in polyethylene small packing drums.

Propionic Acid Production. Raw materials and the respective production processes employed in the manufacturing of Propionic Acid are listed below.

  • Ethylene + carbon monoxide (Reppe hydrocarbonylation),
  • Propionaldehyde + oxygen (carbonyl oxidation)

Propionic Acid Uses. The uses and applications of Propionic Acid may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Propionic Acid are minimum purity of 99.5 wt%.
