Bio-based succinic acid (SA)
  • Molecular formula : C4H6O4
  • Molecular weight : 118.09

Characteristics:

  • Colorless crystallization, relative density of 1.572 (25/4 C), melting point of 188 C, decompose at 235 C, sublimate under the decompression and distillation, soluble in water, slightly soluble in ethanol and ether.

Application:

  • Widely used in medicine, spices, food preservatives, condiments, food additives, surface active agents and so on. It is widely used in the production of degradable plastics PBS, PBST, PBSA, clothing biological fibers, polyurethane, polyether and other polyester products.

Advantages:

  • Compared with the production process of Petrochemical synthetic method, succinic acid by microbial fermentation is purely natural, pollution-free, non-toxic and food grade with no reprocessing.It is biodegradable and uses renewable plant resources as raw material to reduce the pollution of chemical synthesis process to the environment.
