Product Description

Formaldehyde

Application Notes

Formaldehyde is used as bactericidal agent. Formaldehyde is used as an embaliming agent due to its ability to crosslink primary amino groups in proteins through a methylene linkage; however, due to its extremely toxic nature it tends to be avoided. Formaldehyde is also used in numerous industrial applications and organic syntheses.
