Product Description

Succinic acid is a dicarboxylic acid that occurs in nature in such organisms as fungi and lichens. In eukaryotes, succiniate, the anion of succinic acid, is an intermediate in the citric acid cycle, being formed from succinyl CoA and being converted to fumarate. Bacteria and plants can produce succinate from acetate or acetyl CoA, in the glyoxylate cycle.

Application Notes

Succinic acid has been used in large scale applications including the manufacture of lacquers, dyes, and esters for perfumes. In polymer research, succinic acid has been utilized to prepare biocompatible hybrid dendritic-linear polyester-ethers. A study of the co-crystallization of cis-itraconazole with various 1,4-dicarboxylic acids, including succinic acid, has been reported. Succinic acid has been used as a matrix in infrared (IR) MALDI analytical methods. An analytical study of various low molecular weight organic acids, including succinic acid, using capillary zone electrophoresis-electrospray ionization mass spectrometry has been published.
