Alfa Chemistry Announces Offering of Low Molecular Weight Carboxylic Acids

October 27, 2022

Carboxylic acids, as versatile organic compounds, are actively applied in organic synthesis, nanotechnology, and polymers. In order to meet the increasing demand for such chemicals, Alfa Chemistry commences the offering of various low molecular weight carboxylic acids from gram to kilogram productions for customers worldwide. Meanwhile, customized synthetic services are also available according to individual requirements.


Carboxylic acids are powerful complexing agents, allowing better use of elements they are joined. Meanwhile, low molecular weight carboxylic acids, featuring defined composition, high purity, low molecular weight, and strong absorption abilities, have demonstrated greater effectiveness, hence, extensively studied in all walks of life sciences.


While we know carboxylic acids play a significant role in obtaining and modifying various molecules, such as macromolecules, nanostructures, and polymers, the application potential of low molecular weight carboxylic acids is focused on the following areas: first, they can be used in soils as a result of root exudation and microbially mediate decomposition of organic matter. Second, they can help alter minerals by complexing ions at the surfaces, weakening metal-oxygen bonds, and catalyzing dissolution reactions. Third, together with their derivatives, they are broadly used in beverage, food, and feed production, said the Marketing Chief of Alfa Chemistry.


The most commonly seen low molecular weight carboxylic acids are oxalic, succinic, tartaric, formic, malic, acetic, butyric, lactic, fumaric, maleic, and citric. All of the above-mentioned can derive from the decomposition of soil matters, plant root exudates, microbial metabolites, etc. Below are some of the low molecular weight carboxylic acids provided by Alfa Chemistry:


4,4'-(Diazene-1,2-diyl)diphthalic acid (CAS 21278-45-5), 1,2-di(4-carboxyphenyl)-1,2-diphenylethylene (CAS 1002339-79-8), adamantane-1,3,5,7-tetracarboxylic acid (CAS 100884-80-8), 2,5-dipropoxy-1,4-benzenedicarboxylic acid (CAS 100973-03-3), 2,5-bis(phenylamino)terephthalic acid (CAS 10109-95-2), 4,4',4'',4'''-silanetetrayltetrabenzoic acid (CAS 10256-84-5), 5,5'-(ethene-1,2-diyl)diisophthalic acid (CAS 1025726-44-6), glutaric acid (CAS 110-94-1), sebacic acid (CAS 111-20-6), naphthalene-2,6-dicarboxylic acid (CAS 1141-38-4), 5-(benzyloxy)isophthalic acid (CAS 114274-39-4), azelaic acid (CAS 123-99-9), caprylic acid (CAS 124-07-2), hexaphthalic acid (CAS 1246015-46-2), 2,4,6-tris(4-carboxyphenyl)anisole (CAS 1354550-11-0), 3-ethylheptanoic acid (CAS 14272-47-0), 9-oxodecanoic acid (CAS 1422-26-0), 2,5-dichloroterephthalic acid (CAS 13799-90-1), etc.
