Product Description
Adipic Acid:-

With the help of our expert professionals, we have been able to offer Adipic Acid. This acid can be processed by carbonylation of butadiene or by hydrocarboxylation. Proceeds as follows:


A method is reported, which make use of principles of green chemistry in that water is the only by-product. Cyclohexene is oxidized with hydrogen peroxide using a tungstate-based catalyst and a phase transfer catalyst. The waste product is water.


  • Molecular formula: C 6 H 10 O 4

  • Molecular weight: 146.14 g/mole


  • Small but significant amount of adipic acid is used as a food ingredient as a flavorant and gelling aid

  • It is used in some calcium carbonate antacids to make them tart

  • It is used in making polyester polyols for polyurethane systems

  • Food grade adipic acid is used as gelling aid, acidulant, leavening and buffering agent

  • Adipic acid has two carboxylic acid, -COOH, groups, which can yield two kinds of salts

  • Its derivatives, acyl halides, anhydrides, esters, amides and nitriles, are used in making target products such as flavoring agents, internal plasticizers, pesticides, dyes, textile treatment agents, fungicides, and pharmaceuticals through further reactions of substitution, catalytic reduction, metal hydride reduction, diborane reduction, keto formation with organometallic reagents, electrophile bonding at oxygen, and condensation

  • It is useful in a variety of industrial applications which includes plasticizer for polymers, biodegradable solvents and lubricants, engineering plastics, epoxy curing agent, adhesive and powder coating, corrosion inhibitor, perfumery and pharmaceutical, electrolyte.
