Glycolic acid, 100 g
Glycolic acid (Hydroxyacetic acid) is an a-hydroxy acid. Glycolic acid solutions having concentration of 70% and pH range of 0.08 to 2.75 are widely employed as superficial chemical peeling agents. Various oligomers or polymers of lactic and/or glycolic acid (low molecular weight) have been prepared.
Glycolic acid (Hydroxyacetic acid) has been used in the preparation of PLGA-PEG-PLGA copolymer (PLGA = poly(lactic/glycolic, PEG = polyethylene glycol).
