What is Succinic Acid?

Amber Acid has a scientific name which is Succinic Acid, a molecular weight of 118.09, colorless crystals, pickle, combustible. There are two crystal forms, relative density 1.572 (25/4).Solubility: 1g solution, 13 ml of cold water, 1 ml of boiling water, 18.5 ml ethanol, 36 ml acetone, methanol, 6.3 ml 11 ml and 20 ml Glycerin ether, and practically insoluble in benzene, carbon disulphide, carbon tetrachloride, and petroleum ether.

One important use of succinate is prepared from five-membered heterocyclic compounds, such as succinic acid is heated rapidly dehydrates, forming succinic anhydride, it is a furan ring compounds. Succinic anhydride is an important material for manufacturing drugs, dyes, and alkyd resin. Succinic anhydride and ammonia were hot, which generated the succinic imide. Dibutyl hydrogen on the imide imine radical can be replaced by bromine, n-dibutyl polyimide bromides, it is bromide reagent and a mild oxidizing agent in organic synthesis. Succinic acid in medicine have antispasmodic, expectorant and diuretic effect. Diethyl succinate is an important intermediate in organic synthesis. Dibutyl succinate, Octyl esters are plasticizers for plastics. Succinic acid allyl ester and 1,3--butadiene copolymer, which can produce artificial rubber.
